This memorial was founded by Stefan Kaminsky, a patron from Munich, on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Heinrich Heine's death. The Düsseldorf sculptor Bert Gerresheim created a "Fragemal" (Question memorial), a puzzling combination of Heine's cracked death mask, different allusions to Heine's life and quotes from his work, of which the quotes from die Trommel des Tambours le Grand are particularly clear. This piece of art work on the Schwanenmarkt shows the conflicting attitudes of the city and Germans in general, since this was the trigger for many such controversies.
