The large Katzenstein mansion was owned by various nobles in the past. Before the Second World War it was a women's prizon managed by the Sisters of the Society of St.Vincent of Paul. During the nazi ocupation, from 1941 to 1945, it was Gestapo prison in which more than 12000 people, including children, were inprisoned. Some of the former prison cells in the extension of the manor house have been converted into a memorial museum. The graveyard of the killed hostages is located in the park and in nearby Draga valley. The museum is an authentic monument to the horrors of war.
