These two pupils, who are in the 10th form at the "Evangelisches Ratsgymnasium" grammar school in Erfurt (Germany) found an important answer to this question in the words of Auschwitz survivor Éva Fahidi-Pusztai, whom they encountered at the Topf & Sons Place of Remembrance in November 2016. Their audio-visual collage.

In consequence, what steps must we take for a common future?

The most important insight Mattis and Johannis gained from the encounter with Éva Fahidi-Pusztai is "that we have to form our own opinions, and not blindly follow others". In their post, they come to the conclusion: "We must not simply follow the crowds that demonstrate against refugees. We have to think for ourselves and act humanely."
