Memorial Memorial Erweitertes Polizeigefangnis Radegast

This museum is dedicated to the victims of the German prison/concentration camp "Erweitertes Polizeigefangnis Radegast", which stood here from 1 July 1940 to 17 January 1945. It was burned down by the Germans that day, while all 1.500 inmates were still inside, resulting in a massacre.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
