Reservelazarett Pasewalk, station VI - Schützenhaus (8)
Location: Schützenstrasse/Brölliner Chaussee, exact location unknown
Today: The building where Hitler was treated for his hysterical blindness was a Schützenhaus before it became a lazaret. In 1937 it was replaced by a monumental building (Weihestätte) for Adolf Hitler. The building does not exist anymore.
At the end of the first World War (from October 21 until November 19, 1918) Hitler was in a lazaret in Pasewalk, after a gass attack in Wervicq-Sud. After Hitler, together with other blinded soldiers, walked to the lazaret in Linselle he was transported to the Feldlazarett Oudenaarde. From there he was brought to Pasewalk. There he was taken to station VI, a part of the lazaret in Pasewalk that was located inside the building of the former ‘Vereinshaus Pasewalker Schützengilde von 1477’. It was a building where ‘Kriegsneurotiker’ were treated. In other words: it was a psychiatrical clinic. Hitler was treated here for hysterical blindness. He left the hospital on November 19 to go to München.
In 1934 the ‘Nationalsozialistische Hausgenossenschaft Pommeren GmbH’ bought the grounds and destroyed the original building. They replaced it for a monument (Weihestätte) for Adolf Hitler. The building was ready on October 21, 1937. The central room of the building had a bust of Hitler in it with a quote from Mein Kampf above it that said:
‘Ich aber beschloss Politiker ze werden.’ (source: Horstmann, 2004)
In front of the Weihestätte was a war monument

It is said that that Adolf Hitler visited the secret rocket centre in Peenemünde in March 1939, but I’m not sure about that. Maybe this visit is confused with an alleged visit of Hitler of the Kummersdorf Eperimental Station on March 23, 1939. On that date, however, Hitler was in Memel (Klaipeda, Lithuania). If there’s anybody who can clear this up, please send an e-mail.
