Picasso’s Guernica depicts the suffering wrought by a German bombing in 1937 during the Spanish Civil War.
Three years later, when the artist was living in Nazi-occupied Paris, a Gestapo officer saw a photo of the painting in his apartment. “Did you do that?” he asked. “No,” Picasso said. “You did.”

LGBTQ* Films  History You Should Know

Can you name the first pro-lesbian film? Can you name the year?

Mädchen in Uniform (Girls in Uniform) released in Germany in 1931 was the first feature-length film to portray a pro-lesbian storyline and relationship. The film is based on the novel (and play) Gestern und heute by Christa Winsloe.

First Photo:The story follow adoring Manuela, played by Hertha Thiele (right) who falls for her teacher Fräuline von Bernburg, played by Dorothea Weick (left). (1931 film)

Second/Third Photo: Remake (1951) of film. Fräuline von Bernburg is played by Lilli Palmer.

(Note: Loving Annabelle (2006)  has been compared to these films. The largest similarity is the teacher/student relationship.)
