VIENNA - A FLORAL memorial, unveiled this week near the former headquarters of the Gestapo in Vienna, pays tribute to homosexuals persecuted under the Nazi regime. The installation by artist Carola Dertnig on the city's Morzinplatz reads 'Zu Spaet' (German for 'Too late'), in reference to the long amount of time it took to acknowledge the ill treatment of homosexuals under the Third Reich. This recognition only came in 2002 in Germany and 2005 in Austria, after decades of campaigning. In 2006, Vienna authorities announced plans to erect a pink memorial on Morzinplatz to homosexuals persecuted under the Nazis, but the monument never saw the light of day. The temporary installation can be seen until Oct 31, 2012. -- AFP
