The Black Triangle

Buchenwald Disabled Jews, illustrating the black triangle

This black triangle is worn by the men in the photo above – sewn to the left side of their shirts. Disabled people were forced to wear this symbol by the Nazis during the ‘T4′ Eugenics Programme; which was intended to eliminate them. Between 250,000–1 million were murdered by the Nazis’ false hopes of building a ‘master race’.

The UKDHM Logo has taken this symbol, and in reclaiming our history we have inverted it.
