Spandau Prison

Spandau Prison was a purpose built prison situated in the eastern Berlin suburb of Spandau, constructed and operated by the four Allied Powers of World War II to house those Nazi war criminals that had been sentenced to imprisonment at the Nuremberg Trials such as Albert Speer, Karl Doenitz and Rudolf Hess. It was near, though not part of, the ancient Spandau Citadel[?] fortress and was demolished after the death of Hess in 1987 to prevent it becoming a Neo-Nazi shrine.
