Lyon Gestapo HQ

In June 1943, the Lyon Gestapo moved its headquarters from Terminus hotel to a former military academy. The Headquarter was abandoned after being badly damaged by an American bombing raid in late May 1944. Until the liberation of Lyon in September 1944, the Gestapo had its headquarters in Place Bellecour, Lyon.

Current status: Preserved with museum (2012).

Address: 14 Avenue Berthelot, 69007 Lyon.

Get there: Metro to Jean Macé Station.

My comment:

In 2012 there was a resistance and deportation museum in the former headquarters.
