847. Aaløkkegaard

Aaløkkegaard was a children orphanages located in Odense. It existed until 1955 when it was closed for reasons, I have not been able to obtain information about.

From 1955 to 1980 the facility now under new management was a kind of boarding school. The abuse mentioned in various articles happened when it was an orphanages (between 1920 and 1955).

Today the building house ordinary apartments.

According to an article on TV2 Fyn men from the higher circles in Odense could rent a child at the home for a short time so they could fulfill personal needs which almost every time was not in the interest of the child. Beatings, sexual abuse is among the issues mentioned in the article.

It could not have been fun to be there as a child.
