Due to its proximity to the Nazi Kaderschmiede Vogelsang in Nazism Wollseifen was once to be developed into an "Aryan" model village. Fortunately, these plans were not realized. After the war, the inhabitants had to vacate the place within a few days. More than 500 inhabitants suddenly lost their homes. Wollseifen became part of the Belgian military training area and completely destroyed during maneuvers and exercises except for the church and another building. Information boards explain the history of the place.

The small village of Wollseifen was forcibly cleared by British forces after World War II and turned into a military training area. Only three buildings of the original village are still preserved. The former schoolhouse now has a small worthwhile exhibition on the history of the village.
