‘When I saw the homeless in the street, I didn't understand the meaning of the phrase "human dignity is intangible". I had no contact with the men, it was impossible for me to get in touch with them. I had the impression that they no longer had any value, that they had been banished from society.
When the Stëmm vun der Strooss was founded, I immediately seized the opportunity to work there as a volunteer. Here, I met people who were not, strictly speaking, homeless, but who found themselves in difficult living conditions. Nevertheless, many of them kept a sense of humour despite their situation. I laugh a lot here. I have deep conversations about life, politics and philosophical views, the likes of which you rarely hear in a 'normal' café. Here, I'm always very respected, I'm welcomed without prejudice, you're a man among men'.
‘I've been going to Stëmm for six years now. Gast, my son, introduced me. I've already had a lot of fights with women my own age because I hang out with "such people". I'm happy with them, they're my friends. People are frank and I like that. They all have a lot of problems, but they're always in a good mood. We've had so much fun here! No one has ever been rude to me. I'm happy to come here.
