Two paragraphs about the Nazi persecution of homosexuals edited out of a U.S. teachers guide about the Holocaust will be sent out separately to teachers in Georgia. The paragraphs will be distributed following a compromise reached with gay activists, who complained after the passages were deleted on the advice of the Georgia Commission on the Holocaust. The commission had deemed the material too sexually explicit.
