‘In Whom Can I Still Trust?’ Exhibition

This powerful visual testimony to both oppression and resilience was developed by the Homosexual and Lesbian Archive in Amsterdam and has been redesigned and developed for South Africa. It makes use of archive photographs, personal testimonies and video clips detailing the largely untold history of homosexual oppression in Nazi Germany and relates the historical narrative to the prejudices that still exist today.

Through additional panels prepared by the Gay and Lesbian Archives (GALA) and the screening of the South African version of the global “It Gets Better” advocacy campaign, the exhibition aims to highlight the progress made, and challenges faced, in ensuring the protection of sexual minorities in South Africa.

The Centre for Human Rights and the Johannesburg Holocaust & Genocide Centre are committed to using the platform of history to engage with contemporary issues and are providing students, academics and the general public with an opportunity to discuss and raise awareness of discrimination based on sexual identity.

In Whom Can I Still Trust? will be on display at the Centre for Human Rights on the first floor of the Law Building at the Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria from 16 May until 13 June 2014.
