Kolmanskop 6: Schoolmasters house

There were some 40 children in Kolmanskop. Of those 25-30 attended a school in Kolmanskop with classes up to grade 4.

The picture above is from 1926. The teacher was Mrs Hussmann. She lived in a nice little house between the architect and the quarter master.

The house is quite different from the others. Smaller and more old fashioned. It is a beautiful house but sand and weather has been hard on it.

This is the only house you are not allowed to enter. Because of safety. The house is falling apart.

And as you can see this is not because it was badly built.

A hundred years ago this was where the teacher entered her house.

Entering it today is not a good idea.
