    Hi Jay


    Gollnow lies in Poland these days:

    Goleniów - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Also found this:

    Karl Willführ aus ... in Pommern ermordet - »Im September 1943 verhaftete die Gestapo in der Munitionsfabrik in Dömitz den zur Tätigkeit in der Rüstungsproduktion dienstverpflichteten Binnenschiffer Karl Willführ aus Eldena. Der Grund für die Verhaftung des Sozialdemokraten Karl Willführ bestand darin, daß er gegen Mißhandlungen sowjetischer Zwangsarbeiter aufgetreten war. [...] Im Jahre 1944 wurde Karl Willführ zu 3 Jahren Zuchthaus verurteilt und am 25. Januar 1945 im Zuchthaus Gollnow in Pommern ermordet«, Der antifaschistische Widerstand (1970), S. 231; Pommern: s.K. 235, 5.

    (Source: Johnsons JAHRESTAGE - Der Kommentar - 02.04.1968)

    And this:

    Gedenkstein aus den 1950er Jahren vor dem ehemaligen Lehrlingswohnheim in der Bluthsluster Straße für den antifaschistischen Widerstandskämpfer Ernst Pieritz, der 1943 im Zuchthaus Gollnow ums Leben kam. Seit 1990 wurde eine nach ihm benannte Straße entwidmet .

    I hope this info helps you further.

    Zuchthaus translates as Prison and Gollnow was an area in Pomerania, Germany WW2, also Gollnow is now called Goleniów and found in Poland.

    Try searching for gollnow prison or prison Gollnow.

    sorry I cant be of more help.

    helo, whether the subject moved forward?
    Zuchthaus Gollnow:


    incarcerated there a lot of people from the Czech Republic but not only. Many worked in the Luftwaffe Haupt Munition Anstalt Speck.
    The exact history of prisons in the years 1939-1945 is not known. The envelope is a valuable historical monument.
