Wilhelmplatz

Postby Halfdan S. » 10 Sep 2017 01:10

Looking at pictures of the Reichskanzlei seen from Wilhelmplatz I noticed that the statue in front of the Reichsministerium für Propaganda und Volksaufklärung changed sometime over the years - when was the statue changed and what was the story behind?

There were six statues there.

Your photos show two.
One holding the banner - Kurt Christoph Graf von Schwerin
The other one with a hand on a sabre - Leopold Fürst von Anhalt-Dessau
