    Default Gestapo HQ in Krakow

    Hi folks just returned from a week in this amazing city and noticed on my little map a place called Dom Slaski (Silesian House) also known as 2 pomorska st, turns out this is was the house used by the Gestapo, not a huge place but a well put together and lots of information and stories well worth a visit if you go to Krakow, a few pictures for you to see, the cells were very daunting.

    That looks like a fascinating and terrifying place, well laid out as a museum but frightening knowing what took place there. Thanks for the pics mate.

    Thanks for sharing the photos Steve.

    I noticed on the prisoner coat display there is the Polish flag sewn on right side of the long coat and also a smaller flag design on the collar of the inner jacket. I am assuming these must have been added by the inmate after liberation of whichever KL he was incarcerated in.
