Jaslo Gestapo HQ

In central Jaslo, the local Gestapo had its headquarters during the Second World War. People suspected of anti-german actions were brought to the headquarters for interrogations. Brute force was occasionally used to force out confessions and concessions from prisoners. The headquarters also served as a transit prison for prisoners about to be sent to other prisons or camps. Jaslo Gestapo was also responsible for executions of Jews in the area. On July 7, 1942, 1,250 Jews from Nowy Zmigrod were murdered on initiative of Gestapo in a forest, about twenty kilometres south of Jaslo.

Current status: Preserved with memorial tablet (2019).

Address: Za Bursa 1, 38–200 Jaslo.

My comment:

In 2019, the building served as a form of psychiatric nursing home. The memorial is placed on the facade of the building.
