In the Second World War, the bombardments of the nearby Möhnesee Dam in the night of 16 to 17 of May 1943 had cased widespread destruction and catastrophic loss of lifes in the town of Neheim. There were over 800 victims, among them at least 526 victims in a camp for Russian women held for forced labour.

The nearby Abbey Himmelpforten was completely washed away.
