The Shooting Shed (N 55 40.793 E 012 36.818)

One-to-one imprint of the foundation of the shooting shed build and used for executing Danish Nazi collaborators after the end of World War 2. After the liberation in 1945 capital punishment was reintroduced in Denmark. 30 Danish citizens were executed in Copenhagen. The first execution took place on the 5th of January 1946 and the last on the 20th of July 1950 at 01:00PM. The executions were carried out in an architect-designed shed made for the purpose called the shooting shed. It was designed by the then city architect Knud Barfoed and was located away from public attention at the ramparts of Christianshavn. The foundation of the shooting shed still exists. I dug it out of the ground at “Norddyssen” “2.Redan” at what is now Christiania.
