The title of the highlight "View of the Hospital" is a bit misleading, because since about 2011 only individual buildings have belonged to the neighboring Accident Hospital in Berlin.
The buildings you can see here belong to the former 'Institute for Epileptics Wuhlgarten bei Biesdorf', which was founded at the end of the 19th century and in which over a thousand inmates were victims of the Nazis' euthanasia program during the Nazi regime fell.
In 1968 the huge clinic complex was renamed 'Wilhelm Griesinger Krankenhaus', in 1992 the hospital then became the responsibility of the Vivantes Group and was called 'Vivantes Klinikum Hellersdorf'.
Since 2011, individual houses have been gradually taken over to the neighboring 'Unfallkrankenhaus Berlin', other building units are used completely differently today, such as the former main building of the hospital on Brebacher Weg, which is now part of the 'International Lomonossow School'.
