HOSPITAL THAT ONCE NURSED ADOLF HITLER IS ABANDONED

When Corporal Adolf Hitler was wounded by shrapnel in the thigh during the Battle of the Somme in October 1916, he was sent to the Beelitz-Helistten hospital to recover.

Built by Germany’s best architects in the 19th century to hold 600 patients, the Beelitz-Heilstten still evokes the grandeur of when the Kaiser was the leader of Germany and the world was looking towards what they hoped would be a bright 20th century.

Although recovering in a beautiful hospital away from the dangers of the front,  young Adolf Hitler was not content. He wrote to his commanding officers that he could not stand being in the hospital knowing his comrades were still fighting and dying. Hitler spent about two months recovering from his thigh wound before being allowed to return to his unit. He would continue to serve on the Western Front for the rest of the war before being temporarily blinded in a gas attack in 1918.

After WWI, Adolf Hitler rose to the heights of infamy and power before bringing the world’s wrath upon Germany and the Third Reich he and his Nazi Party created. The hospital where Hitler recovered from his World War One wounds also treated soldiers in World War Two and continued to operate until 1994 when it was abandoned to the time.

29-year-old Roman Robroek, from the Netherlands, took these pictures which show the state of the building today. If one looks carefully one can still see the rows of military cots and maimed young men lining the walls, and perhaps a brooding young Corporal who would start another war and assure his future name in history.
