The first ever LGBT Movement: Institut für Sexualwissenschaft (Institute for Sexual Research) was founded by Magnus Hirschfeld and his collaborator Arthur Kronfeld in Berlin in 1919.

As well as being a research library and housing a large archive, the Institute also included medical, psychological, and ethnological divisions, and a marriage and sex counseling office. The Institute was visited by around 20,000 people each year, and conducted around 1,800 consultations. Poorer visitors were treated for free. In addition, the institute advocated sex education, contraception, the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases, and women's emancipation.

The Institute became a point of scientific and research interest for many scientists of sexuality, as well as scientific, political and social reformers in Germany and Europe, particularly from socialist, liberal and social-democratic circles. In 1923 the Institute was visited by Nikolai Semashko, Commissar for Health in the Soviet Union. This was followed by numerous visits and research trips by health officials, political, sexual and social reformers, and scientific researchers from the Soviet Union interested in the work of Hirschfeld. In 1926 a delegation from the institute, led by Hirschfeld, reciprocated with a research visit to Moscow. In 1929 Hirschfeld presided over the third international congress of the World League for Sexual Reform at Wigmore Hall.

Magnus Hirschfeld coined the term transsexualism, identifying the clinical category which his colleague Harry Benjamin would later develop in the United States. Transgender people were on the staff of the Institute, as well as being among the clients there. Various endocrinologic and surgical services were offered, including the first modern sex reassignment surgeries in the 1930s. Hirschfeld also worked with Berlin's police department to curtail the arrest of cross-dressed individuals, including those suspected of wearing certain clothing in connection with sex work, through the creation of transvestite passes issued on behalf of the Institute to those who had a personal desire to wear clothing associated with a gender other than the one assigned to them at birth.

In late February 1933, as the influence of Ernst Röhm weakened, the Nazi Party launched its purge of gay (then known as homophile) clubs in Berlin, outlawed sex publications, and banned organised gaygroups. As a consequence, many fled Germany (including, for instance, Erika Mann). In March 1933 the Institute's main administrator, Kurt Hiller, was sent to a concentration camp. The buildings were later taken over by the Nazis for their own purposes. They were a bombed-out ruin by 1944, and were demolished sometime in the mid-1950s. Hirschfeld tried, in vain, to re-establish his Institute in Paris, but he died in France in 1935.

On 6 May 1933, while Hirschfeld was in Ascona, Switzerland, the Deutsche Studentenschaft made an organised attack on the Institute of Sex Research. A few days later, the Institute's library and archives were publicly hauled out and burned in the streets of the Opernplatz. Around 20,000 books and journals, and 5,000 images, were destroyed. Also seized were the Institute's extensive lists of names and addresses. In the midst of the burning, Joseph Goebbels gave a political speech to a crowd of around 40,000 people. The leaders of the Deutsche Studentenschaft also proclaimed their own Feuersprüche (fire decrees). Also books by Jewish writers, and pacifists such as Erich Maria Remarque, were removed from local public libraries and the Humboldt University, and were burned.

While many fled into exile, the radical activist Adolf Brand made a stand in Germany for five months after the book burnings, but in November 1933 he was forced to announce the formal end of the organised homosexual emancipation movement in Germany. On 28 June 1934 Hitler conducted a purge of gay men in the ranks of the SA wing of the Nazis, which involved murdering them in the Night of the Long Knives. This was then followed by stricter laws on homosexuality and the round-up of gay men. The address lists seized from the Institute are believed to have aided Hitler in these actions. Many tens of thousands of arrestees found themselves, ultimately, in slave-labour or death camps. Karl Giese committed suicide in 1938 when the Germans invaded Czechoslovakia and his heir, lawyer Karl Fein, was murdered in 1942 during deportation.

The charter of the institute had specified that in the event of dissolution, any assets of the Dr. Magnus Hirschfeld Foundation (which had sponsored the Institute since 1924) were to be donated to the Humboldt University of Berlin. Hirschfeld also wrote a personal will while in exile in Paris, leaving any remaining assets to his students and heirs Karl Giese and Li Shiu Tong (Tao Li) for the continuation of his work. However, neither stipulation was carried out. The West German courts found that the foundation's dissolution and the seizure of property by the Nazis in 1934 was legal. The West German legislature also retained the Nazi amendments to Paragraph 175, making it impossible for surviving gay men to claim restitution for the destroyed cultural center.

Li Shiu Tong lived in Switzerland and the United States until 1956, but as far as is known, he did not attempt to continue Hirschfeld's work. Some remaining fragments of data from the library were later collected by W. Dorr Legg and ONE, Inc. in the USA in the 1950s.

In 1973 a new Institut für Sexualwissenschaftwas opened at the University of Frankfurt am Main (director: Volkmar Sigusch), and 1996 at the Humboldt University of Berlin.



Vita homosexualis, a 1902 collection of August Fleischmann’s popular pamphlets on third gender and against §175 - a Wissenschaftlich-humanitäres Komitee library copy, confiscated on 6 May 1933, annotated on the endpaper: By Reichspräsident’s decree of 28.02.1933 destined for destruction!and hidden from the public (label "Secr.") as Nazi plunder by the Prussian State Library. This book, and other that may have survived the destruction of the Wissenschaftlich-humanitäres Komitee and the Institut für Sexualwissenschaft, are sought after by the Magnus-Hirschfeld-Gesellschaft in Berlin

Wasn't the gay club that existed in Dublin in pre globohomo days called the Hirschfield centre ?
Yes it was. In fairness to the Jews, the dirty Quakers who established Alexamdra College were also up to this. They campaigned hard for Sir Maurice Dockrell, the Unionist scum bag who won the Pembroke seat in the 1919 election.
My theory is, if we look at the Jews as a sinister cult, they do these liberal things to protect their flanks, so they have spies all over the place. Fancy how useful the Hirschfield Centre would have been in honey traps?

That was a very good post. German women had been reduced to penury. Japanese visitors boasted about being allowed shrrt on them for food and a few pence. The instigators of these acts are always denegerates. We are swamped here with them and Kinsey's findings were got by surveying criminals. Quite outside of politics, it is amazing Hitler could drain the swamp to the extent he did. The fact that the Communists and the Jews were each, in hteir own way and for their own reasons, happy with Weimar Berlin should be noted. Note Marlene Dietrich is made out as a Joan of ASrc because she moved to Hollywood to eat out snatches there instead of Berlin.

This is an interesting question; in my experience and from things I have read, listened to or watched Jews generally don't have much in the way of moderation on this issue. I have a close friend who used to be a Modern (ish) Orthodox Jewess but who is now an Orthodox Christian Nun- and I think a large part of that transition was her witnessing first hand the level of out of control homosexuality in Tel Aviv, as a Jew she believed that people engaging in homosexual acts merited being stoned to death and she was deadly pardon the pun serious about this. I know another Jewess who lives here who is now a Muslima (I don't refer to her as an ex-Jewess because she has all this "I have the blood of the Prophets" crap) who is from Palestine and has told me that she used to have sleepless nights fearing that Hashem was going to hand over the Zionist project to Hamas and Islamic Jihad because they gave "Torah Justice" (her phrase) to homosexuality while as Zionism had homosexualist supremacist parades. Now given the opportunities for blackmail by the Shin Bet homosexual activity gives Hamas and Islamic Jihad have to be ruthless on this issue- but for these Jewesses we are talking full on principles. The Chief Rabbi in the UK before the extremely creepy and disingenuous "Lord" Jonathan Sacks used to be extremely outspoken against even the faintest homosexualism.

However on the other hand you have also a ton of Jews who are militantly pro-homosexualism and consider any opposition to it Goysiche barbarism of the highest order. This has been the general position of Irish Judaeo-Nazis I have clashed with online (really crazy lads who believe that there is a Catholic Stalinist (sic) menace in Ireland which seeks to round up all Jews and people into homosexuality and gas them). Than you have Jews who believe that tolerance in general is "good for the Jews" and so support homosexualism while holding their noses so to speak.

I am really glad that someone else in Ireland has some understanding of the Quaker problem. A lot of believe that Christians and Jews are okay as such but when they get together than it spells trouble. Quaker in general are highly problematic however once they get together with Jews than seriously watch out. Libtards and Zionazis love to go on about Ireland closing it's doors to the Jews during the Hitler era. The thing is that Irish government representative in Germany in charge of these things was someone who had been raised as a Quaker who than converted to Catholicism- he was also a veteran of 1916- and so took a low very view of Jews quite understandably given the circumstances in which he was raised. I doubt very much that he would have allowed German Quakers in also. So the real blame should not go to Dev or the people of the South as a whole but to the Quaker community.

Jews were at the heart of all great human rights' movements in the 20th Century - whether it
was LGBT, Women's, Trade Unions ( US ), anti Apartheid, Black Civil Rights etc.

Great people - proud record.(y)

Read "Black Bolshevik" by Harry Haywood- there is nothing upfront anti-Semitic in it but there is implicitly- and "The Crisis of the N egro Intellectual". Neither books are head the ball "Nation of Islam" stuff.
