No, for high-ranking members of the Amt des Reichsschatzmeisters. And one of the inhabitants with the official adress St.Quirin-Platz Number 1 was Friedrich Geisselbrecht.
The picture is from the very interesting book "München baut auf!"

Your turn please!

Dr. Robert Ley and Baldur von Schirach were head representatives of an institution which reside in that building.

I claim no prior knowledge about this, but I googled "Karl-Hermann Frank 1944" and turned up the same photo at this website
http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_de ... bc2532658a
According to google translate, the site was originally intended to be a boarding school for German youth in the Protectorate, but on the initiative of Arthur Seyss-Inquart (who was born in Jihlava / Iglau) it was designated in 1943 as an Adolf-Hitler-Schule, one of a chain of elite boys' schools projected to be built across Germany. The schools were a joint project of Education Minister Bernhard Rust, HJ Leader Baldur von Schirach and DAF Leader Robert Ley. This article
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf-Hitler-Schulen
confirms that Iglau was designated as the site for the 12th Adolf-Hitler-Schule.

Nice photos, by the way. What is it now?

Adam`s right, AH`s school Iglau. Police school today, close to the public - once or twice a year you can take a guided tour there. Go ahead, your turn please.

OK, this piece of Nazi kitsch art is also at an educational institution, this one in Germany. We'll start with a small detail and work up to wider shots if no-one recognises it.

I will stay mum on this one, as it is on my webpage, so I'll let someone else go for it. Hey, Pavel, you sure stumped me with the last one ... do you know this one?

Geoff, it is however my photo. I visited it after reading about it at your website. It is surprising, don't you think, that the postwar owners have left this Nazi art in place?

Pavel was lost :( , I was thinking about Ordensburgs, Berlin`s olympic village, Dresden, Munchen.... finally
I was forced :) to cheat and looked through Geoff`s pages and I found it. The next clue`s city of a SS-Junkerschule.

Pavel, how about you give clues to your photos, and I'll give clues to mine, OK?
Here is a wider shot of the artwork.
