This small structure probably only survived the change in sanitary standards because the school caretaker was using it as a chicken coop instead. It was easy to dismantle, being a half-timbered building and was also simple to restore to the original state, separate for the teacher, girls and boys.
The school toilet from Portz
Next to the Kollig farm there is a very different type of little building, which was discovered by museum staff when clearing out the old school in Portz, southwest of Saarburg. It is a small tiled half-timbered building which was originally designed in the last century as a school toilet.
