If you would like to find out more about the biographies of members of your family or other people, here you can find some useful tips and places where you might find information.
We receive many enquiries from people wanting to find out more about the biographies of members of their families or other people. Please note that the Munich Documentation Centre for the History of National Socialism is not an archive, nor does it possess any original documents. We cannot undertake research for private individuals.
The Munich Documentation Centre’s data bank contains biographical information on selected historical figures as well as on citizens of Munich who were persecuted by the Nazis. Visitors can view this information on research terminals in the Learning Centre (2nd lower level).
Here we have assembled a few tips for those wishing to undertake more comprehensive research.
