A violent thunderstorm that swept across the Thuringian Forest on June 13 and 14, 1946, kinked whole trees like matches and mostly spruces were uprooted. The wind break due to the storm destroyed about 1.8 million square feet of spruce forest. For the clean-up and reforestation needed about 10,000 forestry workers. Only 10 years later, a total of 4.5 million cubic meters of wood had been worked up. This is reminiscent of the monument of the forest workers on Rondell at Oberhof.
