A documentary about the Gay Trials of Frankfurt 1950-51
A documentary about a modern witch hunt which took place in Germany from 1950 to 1951: The Gay Trials of Frankfurt. When ninteen year old hustler Otto Blankenstein revealed the names of his „friends“ to the police he started a wave of arrests destroying the lives of more than 200 gay men. Today only very few people know what happened back then. This documentary will serve as a monument to prevent the Gay Trials of Frankfurt from fading into obscurity.
