84 Avenue Foch
During the German occupation of northern France, the buildings at numbers 82, 84 and 86 of the Avenue Foch were taken over by the counter-intelligence branch of the Gestapo, known as the Sicherheitsdienst, or SD.
Number 84 was used for imprisonment and interrogation of foreign agents captured in France, such as those of the British Special Operations Executive . There were frequent transfers of prisoners between number 84 and Fresnes prison on the outskirts of the city.
On the fifth (top) floor were the guardroom, an interpreter's office, and cells for the confinement of prisoners under interrogation.
