Albrecht Becker

Born in Thale, Germany on the 4th of November 1906, at just eighteen in 1924 he fell in love with a much older man whom he lived with for almost ten years.

Albrecht was an actor, production designer and also a photographer that became his main career. A snappy dresser and very handsome he attracted a lot of attention from both men and women where ever he went.

In 1935 Albrecht was arrested under the recently enforced law Paragraph 175 that outlawed homosexuality between men in Germany. He served a sentence of three years in prison at Nurnbeg in Germany, where the police beat him to a pulp.

Upon his release from prison he joined the German Army where he served on the Russian front until 1944 as all of the men had enlisted.

After the war Albrecht became a successful art director working in the German film industry, then in the year of 2000 Albrecht spoke of his experiences in the Paragraph 175 documentary about the homosexual victims of the holocaust.

Sadly Albrecht died on 22nd of April 2002 he was 95 years old.
