Prisoners were executed in this courtyard at the "Wall of Death." To the right of the execution wall is Block 11, the "Death Block." The Gestapo Police Court was held here. In the cellars were many prison cells including some that were a mere yard square, and others in which prisoners condemned to death by starvation were placed. On the other side of the courtyard was Block 10. Wooden shutters were placed on this building to prevent observation of the executions at the "Wall of Death."
