The Hotel Metropole, which was built in
1873, was one of the most prestigious establishments in Vienna. Right
after the “Anschluss” in March 1938, the National Socialists
confiscated the building and turned it into the Gestapo headquarters.
Several tens of thousands of individuals were filed in the building on
the Morzinplatz between 1938 and 1945; they were arrested, interrogated,
tortured, and committed to prisons and concentration camps. Subsequently,
many of them were murdered.
