Long Description:
text of the memorial:



"Domecek (or Hradcanský domecek) is an informal name for a former small prison in Hradcany, district of Prague. The name in Czech means small house and refers to the size of the building.

Domecek, placed next to the building of a military court, had served as a military prison during the Austro-Hungarian period. It was used by the Gestapo during World War II and since 1948 the Czechoslovakian security service (StB) employed it as a secret prison. It hosted 30 solitary cells.

StB used the place for torture of political opponents, among them the officers of the pre-war army or members of the anti-nazi resistance."
