Georg Schmidt, born 28.3.1905 in Horessen, Lower Westerwald District

Steinwache Hof, Do-Nord

Georg Schmidt, a carpenter, was arrested on 30 March 1934 for “preparation of acts of treason” and taken into custody at Steinwache police station. He lived at Stahlwerkstr. 5.

Georg Schmidt was reported by the police as having died only three days after his arrest. He was allegedly found dead in his cell on 22 March. It must be assumed that he fell victim in Steinwache to the brutal interrogation and torture methods of the Gestapo.
