The Nazi regime banned abortion, attempted to cure homosexuality, and sterilized almost all Germans of part-African descent. Yet, our mainstream narratives of the Holocaust exclude those histories. Some of the same people targeted under Nazism -- including people with mental disabilities, women, people of African or Roma descent, gay and lesbian people -- continue to suffer discrimination and violence today. And so we must ask: Does the suppression of collective traumatic memories lead to a perpetual exclusion of specific social groups?
