Distinguished by a pink triangle sewn on the striped uniform, homosexuals crowded the concentration camps scattered throughout Europe, suffered humiliation and torture, were subjected to crazy pseudo-scientific experiments until their death. A page of Nazism too often overlookedAt least seven thousand dead and tens of thousands more in jail. These are the numbers, very difficult to estimate, of the "Holocaust", that still too hidden page of the Nazi extermination of homosexuals.At least seven thousand dead and tens of thousands more in jail.

Footsteps does not only focus on the Holocaust, but rather we work to expose the rise of 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 challenging intolerance and hatred in all of its forms, and seeking to ensure that those who might be targeted or oppressed are supported and cared for.

"Story of God"
with Morgan Freeman
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.
"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.
