How were homosexuals treated in the Netherlands during the Nazi Occupation.

This article has a professor claim that they were relatively untouched:


However this one makes the opposite claim:

Apparently gays were persecuted then…

So which is it?

Both articles claim that homos were not sent to camps during the war in the Netherlands as they were in Germany. So even tho it was illegal during the war in the Netherlands, homosexuality was apparently not punished as much there as in Germany, unless it was in the context of man/boy pedo homosexuality.


Is your focus on the Netherlands part, or the Nazi part in general, re treatment of homosexuals?

Gay men were targeted for persecution because they did not contribute to the desired growth of the 'Aryan population' ... Between 1933 and 1945, an estimated 100,000 men were arrested for violating Nazi Germany’s law against homosexuality, and of these, approximately 50,000 were sentenced to prison. An estimated 5,000 to 15,000 men were sent to concentration camps on similar charges, where an unknown number of them perished.
