There have been several publications purges over the history of The Family International. As law enforcement agencies around the world were investigating the organization, members were periodically instructed to destroy or alter publications to remove evidence of criminal acts, advocacy and promotion of prostitution, pedophilia, incest, child abuse and neglect, anti-Semitism, and other controversial doctrines, practices, and policies. In 1991, members were also instructed to destroy any photographs of people other than their own immediate family.
