The memorial examines politicised criminal justice and its victims during the Nazi dictatorship, the Soviet occupation and the early GDR

The memorial examines politicised criminal justice and its victims in the building complex on Münchner Platz during the National Socialist dictatorship, the Soviet occupation and the early years of the German Democratic Republic. From 1907 when it was opened as the Royal Saxon Regional Court until late 1956 when the East German judiciary carried out the last death sentence, the building at Münchner Platz was used as a courthouse, jail and execution site.

With over 700 photos, drawings, objects and documents the exhibition "VERURTEILT.INHAFTIERT.HINGERICHTET." (Sentenced. Imprisoned. Executed.) demonstrates the role of justice in Dresden during the Nazi dictatorship, the Soviet occupation and early GDR.
