THE VIEW FROM OUR HOUSE  I  A FILM BY ANTHEA KENNEDY AND IAN WIBLIN

 The Prison

This prison on General-Pape-Strasse, Berlin, a location in The View from Our House, was run by Hitler's stormtroopers from March-December 1933.  It is important as an early example of Hitler-Terror. During these nine months, it has been estimated that approximately 2000 prisoners passed through this small prison, many tortured and some murdered.  Less than ten minutes' walk from Erika Koch's house, she remembered hearing the sound of screaming coming from the prison as she passed by.

The following book contains much research about the General-Pape-Strasse prison and those incarcerated there:
