On 28. 4. is the birthday of the deceased beekeeper Carl Rehs . Already as a boy, he had a penchant for beekeeping and worked on the apiary in his parents’ house. Later, besides tireless practical work, he turned more and more to the scientific side of beekeeping. In 1906 he was at the age of 36 years on the board of the local association Ponarth, 1918 he became editor of the Prussian bee newspaper and board of the then provincial association, and since 1924 board member of the German beekeeper. In 1930, he took over the leadership of the country specialist group beekeepers East Prussia. Thanks to his initiative, the Staatl. established apprenticeship and research institute for beekeeping in Korschen founded, which became known under his leadership well beyond East Prussia’s borders. Carl Rehs dealt with the questions of beekeeping in his books “German Beekeeping” – published for the first time in 1914 – “Buntes Allerlei von Immen” and “Von Kanitz zu Kirchhöf fei”. In 1945, like hundreds of thousands of others, he had to join in the tribulations and sufferings of the Russian invasion, which the 78-year-old was no match for. On the 2nd of October, 1945, this ever upright, benevolent, selfless man, devouring himself for the idea and the work, succumbed to the suffering and was buried miserably in Konigsberg on the day of his golden wedding. His wife, Gertrud Rehs , was expelled from Königsberg in March 1948 with her daughter Eva . Today she lives with her children in Fulda, Marienstraße 11

The head of the institution had a Fritz zu Eulenburg-Prassen. But the inner foundation was the work of the Dembowskis . First there was the father Dembowski, followed by his brother, Privy Councilor Dembowski and since 1929 the son of the first director pastor Heinz Dembowski after his death in 1913 . It was a hard stroke of fate for him when, in the spring of 1939, the Gestapo drove up, forbid the Kuratorium any activity, transferred the institution – which was hated and suspected of Christian charity – to the provincial association, and him, the commendable director of the institute Office relieved. He also had to experience that some of his wards went to the gas chambers, some were distributed to other institutions, and the buildings of the SS were used as barracks. His life’s work was broken. He died on 22 February 1945 as a result of a frostbite on one foot and he rests on the central cemetery Danzig-Silberhammer. As the last chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Carishöfer-Anstalten I call on him in the name of countless, who loved and revered him: Thank you for your loyalty and your love! Freiherr zu Knyphausen, District Administrator a. D.
