Myth refuted conclusively
The most thorough investigation of the Homocaust myth is Gunter Grau and Claudia Shoppmann’s Hidden Holocaust? Gay and Lesbian Persecution in Germany 1933-45. Written in German, by two historians of Humboldt University Berlin, it has been translated and published in English.  This book examines first-hand documentary evidence and reveals that during the entire Nazi period, the number of people convicted under anti-homosexuality laws was only 5,000 and they were sent to prisons or labor camps, not extermination camps. Half of that 5,000 survived the war. None were deliberately killed, but some died towards the end of the war of harsh conditions, such as cold, starvation and disease. No lesbians were arrested or jailed. So while the LGBT sites talk hysterically about 100,000 or a million victims, professional historians give a figure of 2,500 accidental deaths.
Misrepresentation tactics and methods
The bizarre publication history of this book gives some insight into the mentality of the people who spread the Homocaust myth. Although Grau and Shoppmann’s book conclusively refutes the claims that the Nazis carried out any large-scale killing of homosexuals, the blurb of the book on the Routledge website says the opposite. It claims the book upholds LGBT activists’ version of history. The fact that they will go so far as to misrepresent an academic book in order to uphold their false world-view could provide useful evidence for a debate on whether homosexuality is a form of insanity. This misleading blurb is reproduced on Google books and elsewhere, perpetuating the fallacy and giving it bogus academic respectability.
