A new memorial to the Nazi's homosexual victims with its video presentation alternately showing kissing men and kissing women should be completed in the German capital by springtime, culture minister Bernd Neumann said Thursday. The €600,000 ($892,000) memorial will be located in Berlin's Tiergarten park, across from the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe - some 2,700 massive slabs of concrete that form a labyrinth of narrow rising and falling pathways. The memorial and video tribute to the Nazi's homosexual victims will be smaller. Berlin's mayor Klaus Wowereit has said building should begin on another memorial - to the Nazi's Roma and Sinti, or gypsy, victims - in February, but Neumann told The AP that was not yet certain.
