Wehrmachtsheim Enschede

From 13 May 1941 to 9 March 1945, a "Wehrmachtsheim". where German soldiers could rest and relax (and perhaps even more), was located in this building.

Before the war this building was a mansion of the Jewish textile-factory-owner Menko. After the war it became a hotel. Nowadays an architect-office uses it.
