While I was working in Ontario, Canada, outside a window of a hotel I was staying at was an old barn.  The attached poster was glued to the side of the barn.  The quality of the picture is bad as I took it from a distance.  The place didn't look very hospitable.  Anyway, the text (I believe) is, "An alle, die schuchlem sind".  Google translate:  To everyone who is schuchlem.

I have 0 results in google on what the word schuchlem is.  Anyone on here know by chance?

I know this is quite an old poster, so if the unknown word is offensive in any way, then I apologize in advance.  I truly do not know what the word is.

Thanks!
