Opening Night of Holocaust Education Week features three remarkable speakers who will explore their various connections to the Holocaust and consider how this family has shaped their identities and inspired their work today. Moderated by prizewinning journalist, author, and Vanity Fair Contributing Editor Nina Munk , the evening explores how descendants - whether of a perpetrator, rescuer or survivor - grapple with their inherited legacy and how they have been compiled to help build a more compassionate and caring world.
Opening night Toronto huge succes!
Footsteps does not only focus on the Holocaust, but rather we work to expose the rise or hate within our communities and in every country. We expose and challenge hate and intolerance, racism, homophobia, sexism and basic human rights to help build a better future by learning from the past and educating our present. Our principles are based on the need to share the history and educate students of all ages on the horrors of the Holocaust, not only to remember and respect the victims, but to keep the voices of the silenced alive. Their stories in the hearts and minds of present and future generations are the key to a better future for all mankind. Together we try to challenge intolerance and hatred in all of its forms, and seek to ensure that those who might be targeted or oppressed are supported and cared for.

Thanks to the Morgan Freeman Team for the opportunity to present our attitude and work at the "Story of God"... It was an incredible experience to be able to accompany this episode together with Tomas. You can see this episode in season 3 "Story of God, with Morgan Freeman".
"Tomas Kraus' father was one of the rare survivors of Auschwitz, and Rainer Höss' grandfather was the commandant of the concentration and extermination camp. These two men came together to discuss how to forgive the sins of the past and move forward. A remarkable moment." - Lori McCreary.
