»A Special Kind of Police Custody«

The House Prison of the Secret State Police in Berlin 1933–1945

Topographie des Terrors

Many of the prisoners detained in the house prison were politically persecuted persons, from whose interrogation the Gestapo hoped to gain special insight. Among these individuals were numerous figures of the German resistance, as well as foreign opponents of the Nazi regime. During the interrogations, many prisoners were tortured. Some committed suicide.
