This building was used by the Nazis as prison, court and execution place.
On the square between the buildings was a guillotine.
More than 1300 people were executed in this period. Other sources mention even more than 2000 executions.
After the war, under the Sovjet and DDR dictatorships, the building was used in the same way. Also in that period many people died in prison or by executions.
