Welcome at the Human Rights Office
On the background of its history during the National Socialist reign of terror, the City of Nuremberg feels particularly committed to human rights. It therefore adopted the motto of "Nuremberg – City of Peace and Human Rights" and established a municipal Human Rights Office. The office's tasks include planning, organising and co-ordinating human rights activities within the city, in co-operation with numerous partners.
