The Pink Triangle and the Nazi Cure for Homosexuality

Poster for The Pink Triangle and the Nazi Cure for Homosexuality Carl Peter Vaernet was a Danish-born doctor linked to the Nazi SS and personal friend of Heinrich Himmler, who was convinced that it had a “cure” for homosexuality. This option was perfectly framed in Nazi racial theory and the dream of the perfect Germanic race, and the specific need of reproduction and birth to develop the conquest of Europe and the world according to Hegemonic Plan and the need for soldiers who had Germany. Himmler then offered to Vaernet experience a concentration camp (Buchenwald) to advance the discovery of the final formula to cure the deviation and degeneration of the Aryan race (Homosexuality). By subcutaneous implantation of an artificial gland, it is injected to testosterone patient, male hormone, which supposedly was going to supply the deficiency of the homosexual. Surgical operations in unsanitary conditions and especially in captivity are the ethical and criminal charges levied on Dr Vaernet, who fled after the war and took refuge in Argentina where he lives from 1947 to 1965, the finding of the contract is highlighted in the film Dr. Vaernet with the Ministry of health of Argentina. The documentary was filmed in London, Berlin, Copenhagen and Buchenwald Concentration Camp, also in Buenos Aires. It is based on the book “Carl Vaernet” whose authors were interviewed for the film, along with other prominent Argentine professionals at the University of Buenos Aires and CONICET.
