Hans Hoffman is gay and Jewish. Both landed him in a concentration camp during World War II, but his troubles were far from over with his liberation. Because of Section 175 criminalizing homosexuality, he was sent straight to prison and went back behind bars again and again over the next twenty years. His only permanent relationship in life was with his long-time cellmate Victor, convicted of murder. What began with disgust and contempt gradually grew into love.
