Guido Pringnitz is a hobby historian who has dedicated himself in his administrative district to the uncovering and research of this secret project. For more than 20 years now he has been researching the camp and its secrets to the present day.

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.
