How do handicapped youth feel in inpatient facilities of professional care services for the disabled? Do they perceive these residences in a way that justifies calling them “total institutions”, where people “vegetate under isolated conditions”? Isn’t it rather a great dreaming of inclusion scientists that integration and (ultimately) inclusion are the only ways to salvation? This article is intended to arouse its readers in some sense by presenting them with statements from 14 physically handicapped people who spent all or some of their school days in a boarding school for physically disabled girls and boys. All life sketches were taken from a collection comprising 20 firsthand reports by former students of the aforementioned institution. The statements from seven authors were excluded because they focused on topics (e.g. school-related aspects) not relevant with regard to its professed aim.
