For reasons of security and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as enquiries that you send to us as the site operator, this website uses SSL encryption.

If SSL encryption is activated, the data you send to us cannot be read by third parties.
The contents and the works created by the House of the Wannsee Conference Memorial and Educational Site are protected under German copyright law. Duplication, processing, distribution, or any form of exploitation of such material beyond the scope of the copyright law requires the prior written consent of its respective author or creator. Downloads and copies from this site are only permitted for private use, not for commercial purposes.
If the contents of this site have not been created by the operator, the copyrights of third parties are respected. In particular, content from third parties is identified as such. Nevertheless, should you become aware of a copyright violation we request that you notify us accordingly. Where such a violation is found to exist, we will remove the offending content immediately.
Liability for links
Our site contains links to external websites belonging to third parties. We have no control over the content of these websites. We therefore accept no responsibility for this third-party content. The respective provider or operator of the sites shall always be liable for the content of the linked pages. The linked sites were checked when the links were set up for potential legal infringements. There was no evidence of any unlawful content at the time the link was set up.
However, continuous checking of the linked pages in terms of content is not reasonable without specific evidence indicating a legal infringement. Where such a violation is found to exist, we will remove the offending link immediately.
