Reproductions and Publications

It is generally allowed to take photographs of documents and objects. Likewise, we can also provide scans of individual documents for free. However, to protect copyrights and personal rights, the decision as to whether reproduction is possible always depends on the document.

If you plan to publish individual documents, we kindly ask you to discuss this with us in advance. Again, the decision depends on the individual case.
