Our first ever podcast series, ‘Learning from Genocide’ features in-depth testimonies and experiences of people directly affected by the Holocaust, Nazi persecution of other groups, and the genocides that followed in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia, and Darfur.
There is always a set of circumstances which occur or which are created to build the climate in which genocide can take place. In this video we explain the ten stages of genocide, as developed by Gregory H Stanton, President of Genocide Watch.

Franziska was a German woman who was persecuted by the Nazis – because she was deaf. Under the 'Law for the Prevention of Hereditarily Diseased Offspring', more than 400,000 people were sterilised by the Nazis between 1933 and 1939 due to alleged genetic diseases. Under this law, every person diagnosed with schizophrenia, hereditary blindness, or any other condition that was believed to be genetic was forcefully sterilised; they would no longer be able to produce offspring. Franziska Mikus was one of more than 10,000 deaf victims.
