Magnus Hirschfeld was a German-Jewish physician and sexologist and advocate for sexual minorities with a private practice in Berlin-Charlottenburg. He was one of the cofounders of the Scientific Humanitarian Committee in Berlin, considered the first LGBT organization. The organization was successful in striking down the paragraph 175, a section of the German penal code which penalized homosexuality. In 1919 he founded the Institut für Sexualwissenschaften (Institute for the Science of Sexuality), a private research institute, in Berlin. He became a target of the Nazis, Hirschfeld was badly beaten up by "völkisch" activist in 1920, and his institute was shut down by the Nazis after gaining power in 1933. His books were burned and Hirschfeld forced into exile in France where he died in 1935.
