Citizens’ Archive

The task of the citizens’ archive is to store, preserve, exploit and provide public access to all official documents that are no longer continuously required to meet official obligations but are of lasting importance and value. The archive also collects documentation that is important in terms of the town’s history and also maintains an archive library. External archive material can be added. The citizen’s archive promotes research and knowledge of the town and local history.

Anyone is entitled to use the material in the citizens’ archive for official, academic or journalistic purposes, or for valid personal reasons, provided this does not violate any legal requirements, particularly those under data protection legislation, or the terms of the Saarland archiving law and, for external archive material, provided its use is not restricted by the agreements made with the owner.
