Petschek Palace


It was at Petschek Palace that the Gestapo of the Bohemian Protectorate had its headquarters between 1939 and 1945. Thousands of Czech resistance fighters, Jews or Czechs suspected of anti-German activities were interrogated, tortured or murdered in the building. The headquarters in most cases served as a staging point for the prisoners on their way to the small fortress in Theresienstadt.

Current status: Preserved with memorial tablet (2010).

Location: 50°04'52.63" N 14°25'53.74" E

Get there: Metro to Hlavni nadrazi station.

My comment:

The building is not a museum but is used for other purposes, but there is a small memorial tablet on the corner of the facade.
