813. Schuberts Minde
Year 2020 became the year where the management realized that they could not manage to provide a modern treatment approach. For too long they used a punishment styled approach against the children placed at the facility by the social services. It has not been acceptable in Denmark since Godhavn was forced to change its way in 1972 but for some reasons the facility managed to stay under the radar for decades.
In 2019 now grown-up former residents started a campaign to shut it down and with the boost of Paris Hilton’s documentary, even locally where the facility experienced some protection due to the number of jobs they provided realized that it was time to change but in fact it proved impossible to update 50 years of neglect in a short while. So the result became the closure.
It could not have been fun to be there as a teenager.
