Established in 1979, this Nazi documentation centre in Cologne is Germany's biggest regional memorial site for the victims of the Third Reich.
Since 1988 the centre has been located in EL-DE Haus, where the Cologne branch of the Gestapo was headquartered from 1935 to 1945. The documentation centre commemorates the victims of the Nazi regime, while also investigating and publicising Cologne's history during the Third Reich. In 1981 the former Gestapo prison was opened as a memorial site. As one of the best-preserved prisons from the Nazi era, it is a cultural site of national and European importance.
