Default Catholic school for girls - 09-11-2010, 22:23

Build during the 1850's by the local monks as a seminary and later it became a school for girls.
During the WW1 the childrens were send home and the building was used as a military hospital.
Later, in the second worldwar, the buildings again became a military use.
First as barracks for the soldiers, and after that as a school for Nazi youth.

After a long and moving history the school, which include a big chapel, is left behind for several years now.

Superb find Bartje, there must be some history locked in those walls.
