    "Red Ox" is the name of the Halle I Prison, which was commissioned in 1842 as the Royal Prussian Penal Institution, Training and Reform Center. Noteworthy is the memorial, which was opened in 1996 to commemorate the abuse of the detention center during the Nazi period, under Soviet occupation and by the MfS. A remarkable permanent exhibition, set up on three floors of the former detention, interrogation and execution building, can be visited free of charge.More about the history of the Red Ox:

    Worth seeing and still partially active prison. Already from the look you know that it used to be anything but comfortable and beautiful here.
