Ghostpast

Germany St. Jozefsheim, jan. 2015

Recommended Posts

This old monastry has quite a disturbing past. It was a hospital for the mentally ill, and at World War 2 it was taken over by the Nazi's. This became a place where they "dumped" the people who didnt fit in the thoughts of a perfect world.

Jewish and handicapped children were murdered here, 512 total. After the war it had multiple functions, from school to military hospital.

Nice bunch of pictures.

I've identified the place rather quickly and gave it a try today. Got greeted by security. :|

And it seems renovations are planned.

Maybe later this year, when the days are longer, if I have to get in early (or alternatively very late). Hopefully they're indeed not starting renovations by then, because there's already a scaffold standing.

      During the Cold War, this bunker was built as an auxiliary hospital.
      The overlying school was opened in the 60s while the hospital was officially inaugurated in the 80s.
      It offered 2,370 places and never went into operation.
      At the turn of the millennium, it was relieved of its responsibilities, the inventory transferred to other states, and the hospital will be soon demolished.

      The location combined hotel, bar and cinema.
      The operation was discontinued in the 90's.
      It used to be the meeting place in this small, rural community, today the decay continues incessantly.

      In these buildings was produced from 1900 to 2009.
      However, the origin of production goes back to the 14th century.

      The rehab center consists of several buildings in very different state of preservation. While some rooms of the spa hotel still look almost as good as new, an outbuilding (possibly former apartments of employees) is already partially collapsing.
      Unfortunately I don't know anything about the history.
