The building of the Chancellery of the Prime Minister has an interesting history. At the beginning of the 20th century it housed the Cadet Corps. During World War I it served as a hospital. In September 1939 it was bombed, and the parts which were not destroyed (the northern wing and the ground floor) were converted into SS barracks.
