Which German office is this in Warsaw please?

Post by nibelung1876 » 21 Jun 2021 08:54

Hello guys,
Does anyone know which German office is located here? Left side of the photo.
It's in the "Ulica gen. Michała Tokarzewskiego-Karaszewicza" which leads to the "Adolf Hitler Platz.
A swastika flag is waving on top of the building, there are guard booths and it is surrounded by a wooden wall.

Thank You, Glenn.

Kommandantur Warschau building, later also called Stadtkommandantur Warschau.
On the right - Europäischer Hotel.

Early war photo (possibly spring 1940) taken in the opposite direction:

Destroyed Pałac Saski in the background of the photo.

The building in question sits now and before WW2 Warsaw Garrison Command.

Thank You crolick,
This is a close up of what You are talking about, a photo I have of the “Pałac Saski” and the “Józef Poniatowski” monument, with refugees in the foreground.
