Heilstätte Grabowsee once former hospital for tuberculosis patients (1896-1945) then only to be took over by the Russian military when World War ll was over. The Russians occupied from (1945-1991)

In 1895, Herr Pannwitz was at the Kaiserlichen Gesundheitsamt (Imperail Health Office), where his campaign for a sanatorium for tuberculosis patients quickly gained support. It was established at Grabowsee on a trial basis in March 1896. Twenty-seven barracks for lung patients were added and the first 30 patients moved in a month Later. the whole thing was a huge success and led to the establishment of similar hospitals all around Berlin, at Beelitz, Buch and Lychen to name but a few. Pannwitz concentrated on the one at Lychen and is remembered fondly there to this day.

The Russians stayed almost 50 years, using the former tuberculosis sanatorium as a military hospital once the war ended, but details on their shenanigans over that time remain elusive and then they scarpered once they realized they weren’t too welcome anymore in reunified Germany.
