The Munich Documentation Center for the History of National Socialism is located in the city and on the site where the Nazi Party came into being and where it had its headquarters. The significance of this location not only challenges us to address the past, but also to ask why Nazi ideology and Nazi crimes should still concern us today. We seek to create an awareness of the impact that historic events have on today’s world and on our daily lives. Subjects such as war and genocide, racism and antisemitism, exclusion and forced migration are still of major global relevance today.
Learning about the Nazi past provides an impetus to think and talk about how we can and should live together in a society of the future.
In our work we are committed to the principles of diversity, equality, respect, and inclusion. We counter nationalist, revisionist, and right-wing extremist tendencies with knowledge, creativity, and optimism.
