Gay German men to lose Nazi-era law convictions

Thousands of gay men in Germany convicted under a Nazi-era law banning homosexuality will have their names cleared after a decades-long campaign.
The German parliament voted Thursday night to overturn post-war convictions under the now-defunct section 175 of the penal code, a law banning sex between men dating from 1871 that was strengthened by the Nazis in 1935, Die Zeit reported.
The law did not explicitly ban sex between women.
