Former seat of the Gestapo in Dom Śląski (Silesia House), 2 Pomorska Street

 


Dom Śląski at 2 Pomorska Street houses an exhibition entitled “Cracovians in the face of terror, 1939 – 1945 – 1956”. During the German occupation this building was the seat of the Gestapo. Thousands of people were interrogated and tortured here, and many of them subsequently shot. To this day, the walls of the custody cells bear the signatures, pseudonyms and last farewells that prisoners scratched into the plaster. After World War II, in the immediate vicinity of this place was the seat of the Communist Office of Public Security – a criminal institution that persecuted Poles who would not acquiesce to the Communist dictatorship in postwar Poland. It is for this reason that the exhibition also covers the postwar period to 1956.
