Sadness in Glückstadt

A few years ago my mother-in-law was sent to a mental institution after she suffered from consecutive nervous breakdowns. As she was living on her own in a remote area of northern Germany, doctors decided where she was hospitalized. It happended to be a house near Glückstadt, which sounded nice, as the name means city of luck. It wasn't like that. It was a place like built for the forgotten ones.

Die Anstalt – Glückstadt

Now as she died some years ago, we visited this place again, to show our little daughter what circumstances grandma had to live in some sad months.
