Two main projects of the Respect and Tolerance Foundation in 2012 were:

- Presentation of the educational program & movie document Diary of Otto Wolf and a Story of his Family in schools in the region. The document was created by members of RT Foundation and describes a true story of a Jewish family, which lived in hiding during the Nazi occupation in the Olomouc county. The thirty minute document is followed by two or three hour interactive educational workshop. Program is very effective and popular with students and teachers as well.

The film document Diary of Otto Wolf, which RT Foundation prepared with a financial assistance from Foundation for Holocaust Victims, won several awards including the First Prize in the Czech National Competition of non professional documents Czech Videosalon 2012 and the second prize in TV Festival of Good News in Ostrava. The UNICA committee chose the document into a collection, which will represent the Czech Republic on the World Festival 2013.
