Posen Gestapo HQ


It was at this location that the Gestapo had its headquarters in Posen (polish Poznan) between 1939 and 1944. Head of the Gestapo in Posen was first, SS-Sturmbannführer Helmuth Bischoff and from November 1941, SS-Obersturmbannführer Karl Stossberg. It was the Gestapo who controlled Fort VII of Posen and was thus ultimately responsible for the murders of physically and mentally handicapped people that took place in the fort.

Current status: Preserved with memorial tablet (2015).
