Biskupia Górka (German: Stolzenberg, sometimes Bischofshügel) is a part of the city of Gdańsk in Poland. Historically, Biskupia Górka had important strategic meaning, since it is a hill close to the main city.
On July 4th 1946, eleven guards of the Stutthof concentration camp were publicly hanged for what was described as “sadistic abuse of prisoners.” Among those hanged were five women: Gerda Steinhoff, Wanda Klaff, Jenny-Wanda Barkmann, Ewa Paradies and Elisabeth Becker, all of whom had been judged and sentenced during the first trial, at Gdańsk between April 25 and May 31, 1946.
