    Schule d. H. J. or in full: "Schule der Hitler Jugend" :cool:

    Somewhere in the middle of Poland, there's this big piece of land, hidden in the middle of nowhere.
    It contains a huge palace with park, a chapel, barns & stables, a distillery and a few houses.
    The palace itself was build around 1900, the distillery and all other buildings are much older…
    This pic nicely shows the scale of the whole property:

    (Palace is the building at the left side of the frame...)

    Just to give you an idea of what the palace once looked like, here are some shots taken shortly before the second world war.

    Until 1940 the complex was privately owned, however, not by the first owner, as he went missing in 1917 during the first world war…

    "The Third Reich" then converted the palace into a school for the Hitler Jugend (Hitler's Youth), what many people believed was just a big, fanatic, boy-scout group.

    The reality was rather different:

    After the Second World War, the land was given back to Poland, but the palace continued to serve for educational purposes.
    In the beginning it housed the agricultural school and in the 70s it functioned as an educational institution and trainings centre for mentally disabled children.
    Which was followed by a school for children with disturbed behavior until 1997.

    Currently the palace itself is left abandoned, but some of the other buildings are still being used as houses and farms..
    We've only briefly explored the palace and I have to say it was just soooo sad to see it's current state. :eek:

    Just as a comparison, these are images taken less then 10 years ago:

    Smart stuff. It would have been great to match the pre-war stair case pictures perfectly, hindsight's a great thing though I suppose. :thumb

    Yeah very good history and pictures. It's standing up well to being abandoned though.

    The place still has some charm and some nice decay too. Everything in Poland seems to be fucked though.

    Great report with some interesting history. Such a pity something like this hasn't been preserved.
