Record Type: concept
workhouses (institutions) (correctional institutions (institutions), <institutions by activity>, ... Organizations (hierarchy name))

 

Note: Institutions overseeing the confinement and labor of paupers, vagrants, and the disabled or elderly poor from the 17th through 19th century in Europe and America, especially those established under the various Poor Laws of England. These institutions eventually degenerated into dumping places for paupers, criminals, infirm, elderly, and the mentally ill. For similar institutions intended to provide punishment and reformation of the criminal, use "houses of correction (institutions)." For institutions providing charitable care for the poor, use "almshouses (institutions)."

Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Instellingen voor opsluiting en arbeid voor arme mensen, zwervers, en gehandicapten of arme bejaarden van de 17e tot en met de 19e eeuw in Europa en Amerika. Armenhuizen vervielen uiteindelijk tot plekken waar schooiers, criminelen, zwakken, ouderen en geesteszieken werden gedumpt. Gebruik 'verbeterhuizen (instellingen)' voor soortgelijke instellingen voor het straffen en heropvoeden van criminelen. Gebruik 'armengestichten (instellingen)' voor instellingen die liefdadigheid voor armen verzorgen.
