Were there hospitals that specialised in specific types of injuries?

 

Here a GJ talks to six other men (one a member of SS Polizei Division). All six men have facial burns.

Hi Larry, 

 

Yes there were hospitals for different types of injury, most notably for eye-problems, neurological injuries, brain injuries, psychiatric departments/hospitals. These were ofcourse all in Germany (or mostly, I believe that some were also located in Austria, Denmark and maybe Norway..?..).

The sign above the panzer soldat reads: "Landesheilanstalt fur geistes - und Nervenkranke."

 

Google translation: "National healing institution for mentally for ill and nervous."

 

A place where soldiers suffering nervous disorders such as "shell shock" were taken or just an ordinary

mental institution? Anyone seen something like this before/

They were institutions with at least 2 purposes: One, to observe and treat the shell shocked soldiers and secondly to observe possible "fakers".. The soldiers with self-inflicted wounds or pretending psychiatric illness was a particular concern to the Germans. They even brought this up on regular meeting; "How to disclose a soldiers faking disease.?". I have a report somewhere in the medical magazine "Der Deutsche Militärarzt".

Hi Hans,

Thank you for your informative answer.

In this photo wounded soldiers assemble toy trucks. Looks to be around Xmas time.

Cheers,

Larry

Hello everyone!

Best, Morten.

From the same series as the photo above. An officer who has lost his left hand tries to take a photo of a small dog.

Not correct Larry, the sitting man is an Unterarzt, he wears Oberfeldwebel boards with the aesculap device. Like this one:
