The location of the memorial was not chosen by chance. On the one hand, it is located on a route heavily frequented by locals and tourists, and on the other hand, the memorial is located at a former meeting place of homosexual men.
Until the Second World War, there was a urinal on the site of today's memorial, which was used for anonymous contact. In the post-war period, the destroyed towers of the bridge were used as a meeting place until the locations shifted over time.
The memorial stands in the context of the long, sometimes very painful and ongoing process of coming to terms with Germany's (National Socialist) past.
