The Vienna Gestapo headquarters was the largest of its kind in the German Reich and the most important instrument of Nazi terror in Austria, responsible for the persecution of Jews, suppression of resistance and policing of forced labourers. Of the more than fifty thousand people arrested by the Vienna Gestapo, many were subjected to torturous interrogation before being either sent to concentration camps or handed over to the Nazi judiciary for prosecution. This comprehensive survey by three expert historians focuses on these victims of repression and persecution as well as the structure of the Vienna Gestapo and the perpetrators of its crimes.

Elisabeth Boeckl-Klamper, Ph.D., is a long-standing research assistant and senior archivist at the Documentation Centre of Austrian Resistance.

Thomas Mang, Ph.D., pursued a business career in Germany from 1971 to 1991. Since 1998 he has published numerous scholarly works on the Vienna Gestapo.

Wolfgang Neugebauer, Ph.D., was Director of the Documentation Centre of Austrian Resistance from 1983 to 2004. He was made an honorary professor of contemporary history at Vienna University in 1995, and has written extensively on resistance and repression in the Nazi period. His publications include The Austrian Resistance 1938–1945 (Edition Steinbauer, 2014).
