At the city and district level, various institutions deal with the regional history of persecution during the Nazi era and pay tribute to the various victim groups. It is not uncommon for these documentation centres to be located in buildings that are historically linked to a Nazi persecution authority or in buildings that were used by people who were discriminated against, displaced, or murdered during the Nazi era.
At these sites, the various groups that were excluded, persecuted or resisted during the Nazi era are honoured. The presentation of individual fates makes local history more accessible to the visitor. In addition, the significance of local authorities, organisations, and businesses in the persecution is documented.
The regional memorial museums also document the flight or deportation of citizens from their home region. Since the survivors and their descendants live all over the world today, the institutions also are of international significance.
