Antique metal Statue of Liberty souvenir and old wooden billiards rack. The triangle shape represents the symbol which originated from the Nazi concentration camp badges that male homosexuals were required to wear on their clothing. There were an estimated 5–15,000 gay men and lesbian women imprisoned in concentration camps died during the Holocaust.  Many tried to come to America but were refused entry and sent back to Europe where they perished.
