Commemoration ceremony 2024

LGBTIQ+ people have been marginalized for centuries and are often still a victim to social hate and crimes. Today, we want to take a moment to honour those people who weren’t as fortunate as we are and show them our respect for the path that they freed for us.

Take part in the guided tours in the National Museum of Resistance on „Forgotten victims“ and a reception after the official ceremony, with a live performance by George Philippart.

Guided tours: Exhibition „Forgotten Victims“

The exhibition tells the stories of people who were marginalized and socially excluded even before the German occupation. These include individuals who are poor, homeless, or have a different lifestyle or culture. It also encompasses people of colour, those belonging to religious minorities, or whose sexual orientation or identity does not align with the societal moral values. Additionally, people with disabilities are not to be forgotten. The Nazi ideology regarded them as „subhumans“ or „harmful elements.“ During the occupation of Luxembourg, they lost their rights and human dignity, were persecuted, forcibly sterilized, and even murdered.
