  1. Fantastic comic. Can you clarify your source for the stats on the number of gay men incarcerated in Nazi camps? I’ve always heard much more conservative estimates, with a maximum of 50 000. I’m thinking you might have a more comprehensive source than I do…

  2. I actually studied this in college for a class on the Holocaust. What was both fascinating and horrifying was how few resources I could find on women who were imprisoned or sent to the camps for being lesbian/queer.

    This is a wonderful comic, btw. Thank you!
