Elend is a district of the town of Oberharz am Brocken in the Harz District, in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. It lies in the Bode valley in the High Harz in central Germany, at a height of 505 m above NN. This part of the valley is known locally as Elendstal. Elend is located near the former Inner German Border between West and East Germany.
Walther Grosse mentions fields under the Elend Road for the first time in a manuscript of field names in the Amt of Elbingerode for 1483. In a Vogtei account for the Amt of Elbingerode dated 1506/07 there is an entry which states: “Income from the sawmill at Elend in the Forest XII March” . There are a lot of indications that this sawmill had existed for some time before that.
