This study gives an analysis of the leading officials working at the Nazi prison of Mírov during 1938-1945. Besides the personal life of prison officials, it also looks at their pre-war activities, political activities and their work at Mírov. The study particularly focuses on three figures – Augustin Mrha, Heinrich Brandstätter and Walter Bartl. Thus the study attempts to take a closer look at the history of the Mírov prison during the occupation period, and explain certain specific events which took place at Mírov, such as the prison’s transformation into an institute for prisoners suffering pulmonary disorders.
