Human dignity

All persons have the same rights.
Everyone has the right to be treated with respect. No one may violate the dignity and rights of others! Treat all people with respect! There should not be any differences due to gender, age, education, religion, origin or appearance.

Violence is prohibited in Austria.
Even in the family there must not be any violence!


Help when you see injustice!
Civil courage is very important in Austria.

You are not allowed to make sexually suggestive comments or come close to another person, if that person does not want that! Sexual harassment and rape are strictly prohibited in Austria and have legal consequences. A prison sentence can be imposed!


Courtesy is important in Austria – also between men and women. For example, extend your hand when greeting others.

Treat others with respect. For example, by being quiet at night.
