LIEBEration 175: Read a Book

Read here about LIEBEration 175, a queer Holocaust history performance art and photography project. Each day, we present the next (at random) of LIEBEration 175 images.

In honor of World Book Day today, we present one of the most vital LIEBEactions… Reading is a dangerous tool of (self)empowerment. At Sachsenhausen I was reading a book by Gennady Semenikhin about history of my hometown Novocherkassk.
