Homomonument 52.374342, 4.884624 Homomonument Monument in commemoration of persecution of homosexuals. The monument consists of 3 large pink marble triangles, together forming a larger triangle. The pink triangle was used in the Nazi concentration camps to mark homosexuals (similar to the yellow star for Jews). On the monument you can read a text \'Naar vriendschap zulk een mateloos verlangen\' (To friendship such an endless desire). This is a famous quote of the gay (and Jewish) poet Jacob Israël de Haan. The monument (created in 1987) attracts many gay visitors from all over the world. One of the triangles sticks out into the Keizersgracht canal. Often you will find flowers laid here by visitors.
