Your social media team at the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism

Always be respectful

Please be sure to use a fair and objective tone in your postings. Always treat other users as you would wish to be treated yourself. For us respect means having regard for the opinions of others. We will delete any posts containing offensive, racist, anti-Semitic, homophobic or sexist statements and if necessary report them to the operator of the respective platform. The same applies to posts that use vulgar, abusive or hateful language or that violate the rights of third parties or are in breach of copyright. We will block the authors of any such posts.

Keep to the point

Our posts on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter offer information about events and topics at the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism. Contributions to the discussion should therefore be relevant to the respective issue. We reserve the right to delete irrelevant posts.

Abuse of social media

Abuse of the various social media channels for the purpose of advertising other websites or services or to offer goods or services commercially or privately is not permitted and will result in such posts being deleted and reported and the authors being blocked. Information, software or other material that contravenes the law may not be posted.

Quotations, images, links

If you would like to include a quotation in your post, please name the source and the author. Other users should be able to trace and check quotations and sources. When posting text or images, please observe copyright and rights of use. Please be as sparing as possible with links to external websites.


We assume no responsibility for users’ posts on our platforms; responsibility lies solely with the person concerned. In posting a contribution the author gives the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism the right to keep the post on its social media channels permanently.

Violations of Netiquette

As the operator of this online presence we will punish all violations of the principles listed here. We reserve the right to delete posts immediately, if necessary without giving reasons, to report them and to block the author of the post. Violations of general laws and legal regulations can in some circumstances lead to exclusion from the platform in question and in the case of serious violations to the initiation of legal action.
