Great show.... a bit sobering, but very real. Great story with good acting for an amazing price!

It was very moving and emotional. The actors were good and the story was powerful.

Description

Ranked lower on the human scale than Jews, the men, as avowed homosexuals, flee. Desperate and on the run, Max asks his own “discreetly” homosexual Uncle Freddie for help as the older man offers little more than suggestions on how to live, as he does, practicing homosexuality on the side. Attempting their escape, Rudy is beaten to death as Horst, another homosexual prisoner, warns Max to deny his lover. Taken to a death camp at Dachau, Max and Horst branded with the “pink triangle”, hope to survive with each other for comfort and courage but it is not to be.
