It never came to that. World War II broke out, and the work force was needed for the arms industry.
In the years until 1945, about 350 students were formed into eager national socialists - for the service to the people and the state. Among them was Heinz Hitler, nephew of Adolf Hitler.
With the end of the 3rd Reich, so ended the era of this kind of school - but the building remained.
After the founding of the German Democratic Republic (East Germany), the Socialist Unity Party of Germany used the building as a party school.
This use was not all that different from the one until the end of the war - these party schools' purpose was to ideologically educate the future leaders of the "workers' and peasants' state".
From 1956 until 1989, more than 16.000 members of the party attended the one-year courses at the "Regional Party School 'W. L.'", which was the second highest party school in East Germany.
After the German reunification the buildings were used by various professional schools until 2005. Since then, the buildings are empty.
