The Gestapo exhibition

The Gestapo exhibition

The Gestapo prison cells and torture chambers in the basement are reconstructed to the way they existed during the Second World War. The events which took place in the basement are illustrated with the help of full-sized exhibits and mannequins.The purpose of recreating parts of the Gestapo headquarters is to give a glimpse into the activities and atmosphere of Arkivet during the period from 1942-45. This is meant to help make visible the results of totalitarian ideologies.
