Rote Schule Strasburg (Um.)


The building was constructed by the local master builder Georg Döring. The roof construction was created by Hermann Rebschläger from Strasburg. The school opened on September 29, 1895 and at that time accommodated 569 female and 541 male pupils attending 16 primary school classes. The first principal was Paul Stiens. Previously, lessons had been held in the vicarage built in 1760, which later became Suhr's orphanage. After the Second World War, the elementary school was converted into a Central School II and served as an elementary school from 1953. In 1979 it was given the name Käthe Kollwitz. In 1983, it merged with the EOS in Schönhauser Straße to become Polytechnische Oberschule I. A year later, it was renamed in memory of the functionary of the German Communist Youth League (KJVD) and fighter in the Spanish Civil War, Artur Becker. Since reunification in 1991, it has served as an elementary school.
