Rooms of the WhK in the Institute for Sexual Science, 1919-1933

The Society was founded in 1982 in West Berlin on the occasion of the approaching fiftieth anniversary of the destruction of the Berlin Institute for Sexual Science.
The Magnus Hirschfeld Gesellschaft sees its tasks as the following:
  • to study the history of research on sexuality and gender (anthropology, womens' studies, etc.) and of the sexual reform movement, as well as of related scholarly disciplines and life reform movements.
  • to help establish research on sexuality and gender within academic institutions.
In order to realize these goals, the Magnus Hirschfeld Gesellschaft established a centre for research on the history of sexual science in 1992.
