Here's a little series from a Stabsarzt photo album. He served in the 16 Inf. Division.

Hi Larry,

Thank you for sharing your photos! Sorry, I haven't visited the forum for a long while because of the craziness at my work as we have moved to a new office.

Is there any indication where the photo with the children was taken? It looks like Germany or Austria to me.

Here are a few press photos from BPK showing similar, albeit more formal, visits in German hospitals in the beginning of the war.

Thanks Linkar.
Here is the caption under the children entertaining wounded soldiers pictures.
"Im Parkhaus Hass?ode 20.4.1944."

The album covers his service with San. 16 right up to the last month of the war and includes service in France, Italy and Russia.

There are many interesting photos in the album some of which I will share here.

The last series of photos in the album dated April, 1945 show him with staff and patients in front of Hotel Preuss Hof, Wernigerode in the Harz Mountains, which was converted into a reserve Lazarett.

They all look to be in high spirits possibly knowing that the Americans were not far away and the war would soon be over.

Here are some photos taken in front of the hotel.

Interestingly the building is still a hotel. It is now known as Hotel Schlossblick.

Here is a period photo of the hotel/lazarett and a modern one showing the building has not changed much over the years except for additions to the main entrance.

Hi George,

Good to see you here! Thank you for sharing your Ebay finds.

For those who are interested, the first two hospital photos ( the man in a laboratory and the patients eating in their ward) in your post are said to be taken in Lazarett Gross-Born in Borne Sulinowo, Poland. I came across them and one more photo from the same series on Ebay.de too:
Sulinowo Lazarett Groß Born Borne Polen 2 Ebay_de.jpg
The people in the photo don't look like patients but they could be part of the hospital staff. Text on the back of the photo (the same text is on the back of the photo with patients having a meal in their ward):

The second set of photos is interesting since it shows the life of recovering or lightly wounded patients in a hospital. Of course, they played cards and flirted with nurses to kill time! :D

Larry,

Thank you for more interesting photos! It's truly remarkable how cheerful the people were in the April 1945 pictures. They were probably relieved that the war was finally coming to an end.

I looked up 16 Inf. Div. on Lexicon der Wehrmacht website. It was renamed 16 Panzer Grenadier Division and in April 1944 it was being merged with 116 Panzer Division after suffering heavy losses in Uman in March 1944. In April the location of 116 Panzer Division was France, later - Normandy. I did not find Hassrode or Hasshode, but I came up with Haasrode, a place in Belgium near Brussels, which could make a logical transit point in the transfer of the remains of 16 Inf. Div. from the Eastern Front to France. Just a guess.
