"It looked as if the building had been abandoned in a hurry", says janitor markus pistor during a tour of the old school. Cups were still on the desk in the teachers’ room, books on the shelves. The movable furniture has been disposed of in the meantime. At the moment, the employees of recyclinghof koob from hildburghausen are busy with the professional disposal of ripboard& co. Employed. Then the old schmeilsdorf school, built in 1965, is demolished.
Until its closure, the school, which belonged to the former fassoldshof youth center, was full of life. Countless young women studied there to become housekeepers or hairdressers. In addition to classrooms, the school also had a kitchen and a gym. At that time, the schmeilsdorf house was purely a girls’ home. The youngsters were housed a few kilometers away in fassoldshof.
A lot has happened since then. Since 1988, the residential area has no longer been reserved for female residents alone, but is now home to people with disabilities who are cared for by the rummelsberger diakonie. The school building was still used for teaching purposes by fassoldshof for a while.
