Some may remember the custom of a student having to stand in the corner when he somehow misbehaved. There were times when the apparent loggerheads had to wear a "Donkey's Cap". The donkey was considered a dumb, stubborn and petulant animal. Students with donkey ears were of course subjected to the mockery of the class. We are not aware whether such caps were used in the famous village schools of Baron Friedrich Eberhard von Rochow. But at least his educational concepts were considered to be exemplary during the 18th century. In Reckahn, he is commemorated in the historical school building and in the former von Rochow castle. Our "Donkey's Cap" is not actually a museum piece. It is used in museum education of the school museum to show students today what they would have faced in the old days.
