Execution House

In the 17th century, the house belonged to Princes Khovansky, and in the 1830s Nikolai Stankevich rented an apartment here, who founded a famous circle. Stankevich's circle included many talented representatives of literature and philosophy.

However, the house on [Nikolskaya] (http://kudago.com/msk/place/nikolskaya-ulica/) won gloomy fame during the era of the Soviet Union, or rather, during the Stalinist terror: meetings of the Military collegium, which convicted about 47,500 people, most of whom were sentenced to death by firing squad. Many prominent figures of art and science, representatives of the military elite and the Soviet intelligentsia were among the people sentenced to the highest degree. The sensational “Tukhachevsky case” was considered in the house on Nikolskaya Street. The Military Collegium spent about 15 minutes on each case under consideration, and lawyers and witnesses were not present. The verdict was purely formal, since even before the consideration of the case, the verdict was confirmed by Joseph Stalin and members of the Politburo.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, a commission was created, whose members studied the cases raised from the archives of the Military Collegium. Almost all convicts have been rehabilitated.

After 2005, the building changed owners, and in 2012 it received the status of a cultural heritage monument. In 2021, restoration work was completed here.
