Villa Pauly


In central Luxembourg, between August 1940 and September 1944, the Gestapo had a local headquarter in Villa Pauly. In the basement of the villa, prisoners were interrogated and tortured.

Current status: Preserved with museum (2012).

Address: 57 boulevard de la P├ętrusse, 2320 Luxemburg.

Get there: Bus.

My comment:

The headquarters were under a larger police administrative area called the Kripostelle Krier. Today there is a museum in the house dedicated to the resistance in Luxembourg during the years of occupation.

Follow up in books: Höhne, Heinz: The Order of the Death’s Head: The story of Hitler’s SS (1969).
