Before the war, this building served as the seat of the OGPOe (secret police) and later the NKVD.The "Big House" remained undamaged throughout the Siege of Leningrad (1941-1944). The top floor was used to detain captured German officers. German pilots knew this and therefore dit not attack the building.
