Nantes Gestapo HQ

In central Nantes, the local Gestapo had its headquarters between 1940 and 1944. French citizens who belonged to the resistance movement, were suspected being in contact with the resistance or simply being French patriots were brought to the headquarter. There they were interrogated and in some cases tortured in order to get information or confessions.

Current status: Preserved with memorial tablet (2016).

Location: 47°13'10.46" N 01°32'57.60" W

Get there: Walk from central Nantes.

My comment:

Exactly what the building’s purpose was in 2016 I do not know. A small memorial tablet is placed on the facade.
