Where do we come
Deacon in 1925 students
The idea of an "assistant institute" Johann Hinrich Wichern already expressed 1832nd He submitted his entry into the rough house to the Board before this idea and found out only once a cancellation. But 1834 were the first "brothers" here, and the number of children admitted grew faster than expected. 1835 had his request for a "Brothers Institute" Success, 1839, the Board Wichern the responsibility entrusted to the development. 1842, a first message appeared on the Institute's Rough House aides as a "seminar for the Inner Mission."
The real reasons for the "brothers managed institution," as in 1844 formed a Board of Trustees. The training organization created in this way Wichern quickly gained high recognition. Wichern presented an order of the brotherhood, which he designed the family institution in accordance with the principle of children as brothers families. He called it "Seminary," which headed an elected by the brothers Konviktmeister.
The distress which he met and its remedy he saw was challenged for Wichern always the starting point for new action, because "only he can, the need to oppose in all its variety, has the courage to first small act." So he sent in the beginning of the work of the Red Cross field deacons as a medic in the German-Danish war. He pushed for support of emigrants. He supported the wandering journeymen in "Hostels for the home," was involved in the care of railway construction workers and sent the city missionaries. Today, brothers and sisters of the Rough House in Germany to find, but also overseas.
