Magnus Hirschfeld ( svibnja , Kolberg, Pruska - svibnja , Nica, Francuska) bio je njemački liječnik, seksolog i suosnivač prve organizacije za prava homoseksualnih osoba - Znanstveno-humanitarnog odbora. Rani život. Hirschfeld je rođen u Kolbergu, u židovskoj obitelji, kao sin poznatog liječnika Hermanna Hirschfelda. IN , Magnus Hirschfeld and Arthur Kronfeld, founded the “Institut für Sexualwissenschaft” (Institute for ‘Sexual Research’) in Berlin. Both were active in the German Communist Party and were prominent members of Berlin’s Jewish community. Magnus Hirschfeld found a balance between practicing medicine and writing about his findings. Between 1 May–15 October , the Große Berliner Gewerbeausstellung ("Great Industrial Exhibition of Berlin) took place, which featured 9 "human zoos" where people from Germany's colonies in New Guinea and Africa were put on display for the visitors to gawk at. Magnus Hirschfeld (– 14 May ) was a Jewish German physician and sexologist educated primarily in Germany; he based his practice in Berlin-Charlottenburg. An outspoken advocate for sexual minorities, Hirschfeld founded the Scientific Humanitarian Committee.

Most notably, Hirschfeld testified that "homosexuality was part of the plan of nature and creation just like normal love.
The Vossische Zeitung newspaper condemned Hirschfeld in an editorial as "a freak who acted for freaks in the name of pseudoscience".
Hirschfeld makes public propaganda under the cover of science, which does nothing but poison our people. Real science should fight against this!
At the time, the subject of female sexuality was taboo, and Elbe's testimony was very controversial, with many saying that Elbe must, in some way, be mentally ill because of her willingness to acknowledge her sexuality.
Letters to the newspapers at the time, from both men and women, overwhelmingly condemned Elbe for her "disgusting" testimony concerning her sexuality.
He overturned the verdict under the grounds that homosexuals "have the morals of dogs" and insisted that this verdict could not be allowed to stand.
After the verdict was overturned, a second trial found Harden guilty of libel. Because Eulenburg was a prominent anti-Semite and Hirschfeld was a Jew, during the affair, the völkisch movement came out in support of Eulenburg, whom they portrayed as an Aryan heterosexual, framed by false allegations of homosexuality by Hirschfeld and Harden.
As a gay Jew, Hirschfeld was vilified relentlessly by the völkisch newspapers. Hirschfeld A Public Danger: The Jews are Our Undoing! In , Hirschfeld was swept up by the national enthusiasm for the Burgfrieden "Peace within a castle under siege" as the sense of national solidarity was known where almost all Germans rallied to the Fatherland.
He also expressed the opinion that nobody wanted to take responsibility for the war because its horrors were "superhuman in size".
In , Hirschfeld was very badly beaten up by a group of völkisch activists who attacked him on the street; he was initially declared dead when the police arrived.
Congresses were held in Copenhagen , London , Vienna , and Brno Hirschfeld was both quoted and caricatured in the press as a vociferous expert on sexual matters; during his tour of the United States, the Hearst newspaper chain dubbed him "the Einstein of Sex".
He identified as a campaigner and a scientist, investigating and cataloging many varieties of sexuality, not just homosexuality.
He developed a system which categorised 64 possible types of sexual intermediary, ranging from masculine, heterosexual male to feminine, homosexual male, including those he described under the term transvestite Ger.
Transvestit , which he coined in , and those he described under the term transsexuals , a term he coined in Hirschfeld co-wrote and acted in the film Anders als die Andern "Different From the Others" , in which Conrad Veidt played one of the first homosexual characters ever written for cinema.
The film had a specific gay rights law reform agenda; after Veidt's character is blackmailed by a male prostitute, he eventually comes out rather than continuing to make the blackmail payments.
His career is destroyed and he is driven to suicide. Hirschfeld played himself in Anders als die Andern , where the title cards has him say: "The persecution of homosexuals belongs to the same sad chapter of history in which the persecutions of witches and heretics is inscribed Only with the French Revolution did a complete change come about.
In Germany, however, despite more than fifty years of scientific research, legal discrimination against homosexuals continues unabated May justice soon prevail over injustice in this area, science conquer superstition, love achieve victory over hatred!
In May , when the film premiered in Berlin, the First World War was still a very fresh memory and German conservatives, who already hated Hirschfeld, seized upon his Francophile speech in the film praising France for legalizing homosexuality in as evidence that gay rights were "un-German".
At the end of the film, when the protagonist Paul Körner commits suicide, his lover Kurt is planning on killing himself, when Hirschfeld appears to tell him: "If you want to honor the memory of your dead friend, you must not take your own life, but instead preserve it to change the prejudices whose victim — one of the countless many — this dead man was.
That is the task of the living I assign you. Just as Zola struggled on behalf of a man who innocently languished in prison, what matters now is to restore honor and justice to the many thousands before us, with us and after us.
Through knowledge to justice! The anti-suicide message of Anders als die Andern reflected Hirschfeld's interest in the subject of the high suicide rate among homosexuals, and was intended to give hope to gay audiences.
Under the more liberal atmosphere of the newly founded Weimar Republic , Hirschfeld purchased a villa not far from the Reichstag building in Berlin for his new Institut für Sexualwissenschaft Institute of Sexual Research , which opened on 6 July In Germany, the Reich government made laws, but the Länder governments enforced the laws, meaning it was up to the Länder governments to enforce Paragraph Until the November Revolution of , Prussia had a three-class voting system that effectively disfranchised most ordinary people, and allowed the Junkers to dominate Prussia.
After the November Revolution, universal suffrage came to Prussia, which become a stronghold of the Social Democrats. The SPD believed in repealing Paragraph , and the Social Democratic Prussian government headed by Otto Braun ordered the Prussian police not to enforce Paragraph , making Prussia into a haven for homosexuals all over Germany.
The Institute housed Hirschfeld's immense archives and library on sexuality and provided educational services and medical consultations; the clinical staff included psychiatrists Felix Abraham and Arthur Kronfeld , gynecologist Ludwig Levy-Lenz, dermatologist and endocrinologist Bernhard Schapiro, and dermatologist Friedrich Wertheim.
Hirschfeld himself lived at the Institution on the second floor with his lover, Karl Giese , together with his sister Recha Tobias — Tante 'aunt' was a German slang expression for a gay man but did not mean, as some claim, that Hirschfeld himself cross-dressed.
People from around Europe and beyond came to the Institute to gain a clearer understanding of their sexuality. Christopher Isherwood writes about his and W.
Auden 's visit in his book Christopher and His Kind ; they were calling on Francis Turville-Petre , a friend of Isherwood's who was an active member of the Scientific Humanitarian Committee.
In addition, a number of noted individuals lived for longer or shorter periods of time in the various rooms available for rent or as free accommodations in the Institute complex.
Among the residents were Isherwood and Turville-Petre; literary critic and philosopher Walter Benjamin ; actress and dancer Anita Berber ; Marxist philosopher Ernst Bloch ; Willi Münzenberg , a member of the German Parliament and a press officer for the Communist Party of Germany ; Dörchen Richter , one of the first transgender patients to receive sex reassignment surgery at the Institute, and Lili Elbe.
The Institute and Hirschfeld's work are depicted in Rosa von Praunheim 's feature film Der Einstein des Sex The Einstein of Sex , Germany, ; English subtitled version available.
Although inspired by Hirschfeld's life, the film is fictional. It contains invented characters and incidents and attributes motives and sentiments to Hirschfeld and others on the basis of little or no historical evidence.
However, according to The Hirschfeld Archives by Heike Bauer, in his desire to normalize homosexuality, Hirschfeld propagated the language of scientific racism and colonialism by publishing anthropological studies of "[sexual practices] among Naturvölkern primitive peoples to support its argument that homosexuality was a naturally occurring phenomenon in the distinct group of Kulturvölker civilized peoples.
In , Hirschfeld founded the Wissenschaftlich-humanitäres Komitee , WhK, also known as the Scientific Humanitarian Committee, which was the world's first homosexual organization.
Campaigning for queer rights, the WhK fought to repeal Paragraph of the Imperial Penal Code, which criminalized homosexuality between men in Germany.
In , Hirschfeld introduced a petition to abolish Paragraph According to Reconsidering the Emergence of the Gay Novel in English and German by James Patrick Wilper, the petition outlined the humanitarian and scientific reasons for repealing Paragraph and amending it so that the only homosexual acts that are punished are those involving coercion or public annoyance.
According to Queer Identities and Politics in Germany by Clayton J. The Berlin police often ignored the sexual activity of powerful and wealthy men and instead targeted lower classes.
The petition was ultimately unsuccessful, but according to The Hirschfeld Archives by Heike Bauer, so was an attempt to criminalize homosexuality between women.
However, despite its failure, the petition garnered signatures of lawyers, scientists, and civil servants. In less than 20 years, the number of signatures would number over 3, and include public figures such as Thomas Mann, Rainer Maria Rilke, and Frank Wedekind.
Following the work of Karl Heinrich Ulrich, Hirschfeld categorized homosexual people as " the third sex " and " sexual intermediaries.
According to The Paris Review , Hirschfeld coined the term "transvestite" in , seeking to describe transgender people and people who cross-dress.
Some gay men took offense at Hirschfeld's language, noting that it might propagate inaccurate stereotypes, but people had been emboldened by Hirschfeld's efforts and became increasingly vocal about queer social reform.
According to Atlas Obscura , Hirschfeld was able to pressure the police to create ID cards that authorized people to dress according to the gender of their choosing.
While cross-dressing wasn't technically illegal, people were subject to the whims of the police and could be charged with being a "public nuisance," which could come with a fine of marks or six weeks in jail.
Within 20 years, Hirschfeld would go on to advocate for and perform gender confirmation treatment and surgery.
In , Dora Richter was the first person to have a complete gender confirmation at Hirschfeld's Institute for Sexual Science. Hirschfeld was also notably involved in feminist organizations.
In , he joined her in lobbying the Reichstag not to criminalize lesbians. In addition to his work on homosexuality, Hirschfeld also advocated for contraception, abortion, sex education, and marriage reform.
According to the Magnus Hirschfeld Society , with Stöcker, Hirschfeld advocated for the repeal of Paragraph , which criminalized abortion. According to Magnus Hirschfeld and the Quest for Sexual Freedom by E.
Mancini, Hirschfeld's consideration of women was comparatively progressive, especially in his acknowledgement of women's sexual desire and pleasure.
Hirschfeld sought to embrace a wide variety of feminist causes, such as the legitimization of wedlock children and women's right to education.
However, according to The Hirschfeld Archives by Heike Bauer, Hirschfeld perpetuated a Western mentality that centered on men during his later travels around the world.
Despite the fact that he met with many women sexual reformers around the world, his text The World Journey fails to give them a voice, which is "doubly problematic given the text's anticolonial [sic] framework and emphasis on the existence of localized yet internationally connected feminist and sexual reform movements.
In , Magnus Hirschfeld became involved in the Harden-Eulenburg affair, a scandal involving journalist Maximilian Harden and Prince Philipp Eulenburg.
According to the European University Institute , in , Harden began a press campaign against Kaiser Wilhelm II, claiming that the emperor had surrounded himself with degenerates, among whom Harden named Prince Eulenburg as the leader.
Hirschfeld was one of the founders of the Medical Society for Sexual Science and Eugenics, established in The next year he published his study Homosexuality in Men and Women , which was based on the expansive statistical surveys on homosexuality that he had conducted.
In addition to publishing works on sexology and sexual reforms, Hirschfeld also wrote about racism, politics, and the history of morals.
In Hirschfeld opened the first sexology institute in the world, the Institute for Sexual Science, in Berlin; the institute and the considerable holdings of its library and archives were destroyed by Nazi demonstrators in Hirschfeld also participated in the production of the first film to call for the decriminalization and acceptance of homosexuality, Different from the Others The controversial film ignited much debate and was banned by German officials within a year.
In Hirschfeld founded the World League for Sexual Reform WLSR , which had its roots in an early conference that he had organized in , the First International Conference for Sexual Reform on a Scientific Basis.
The WSLR called for reform of sex legislations, the right to contraception and sex education, and legal and social equality of the sexes.
Being a Jew, a gay man, and a sexual liberation activist made Hirschfeld the target of right-wing supporters, and he suffered serious injuries from an attack in He instead went to Switzerland and then in to France , where he died the next year.
