Haus 7

Haus 7 was a shop, café and meeting place for SS families, mostly wives to socialise with other wives, to gossip and live normal lives away from what was happening only 5 minutes to the south at Auschwitz I. A large extension to the east of the pre-war Haus 7 building was extended to create a large café area, perfectly placed on the border of the SS house district, the so called SS Siedlung. Just 2 minutes to the east of Haus 7 was the large DAW slave labour complex on the road leading to the 'Krupp Alley', the road from Auschwitz I to the Krupp slave labour complex that was surrounded by sentries when prisoners made their daily commute to work. The former Haus 7 maintains many of its external features since the war period, as do many of the SS houses nearby.
