Alt Rehse is a village and a former municipality in the Mecklenburgische Seenplatte district, in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. On 1 July 2008, it was incorporated into the town Penzlin.
During the Nazi era it was the site of an Institute of Genetics, run by Dr Hermann Boehm, and the Führerschule der Deutschen Ärzteschaft . At this school, doctors, nurses and midwives attended a six-week course, during which they studied Nazi racial ideology, genetics, “racial science” and eugenics under Boehm. Students wore uniforms and were expected to participate in sports as well as hard daily exercise and to carry out physical labour. It was the eventual intention that all German medical professionals would pass through the school.
