, 1915

Hindenburg, who still remembers him today? Hindenburg was soldier and field marshal. During his time as President of the German Reich, he helped Hitler rise to power. The zeppelin, which burst into flames near Lakehurst, carried his name. And our little Hindenburg made a big impression once too. In 1915, the German field marshal finally achieved a German victory and drove the Russians out of Eastern Prussia. Naturally, the victor had to be spotlighted adequately. Especially in Berlin. The old warrior was set up on the Royal Plaza in front of the Reichstag in the form of a 12-m high wooden "nail man". For a war donation, anyone could smack the enormous Hindenburg with a solidary nail. He was created by the painter and sculptor Georg Marschall from Wittstock on the Dosse. But since the original Hindenburg was not preserved and would not have fit through the doors, the Wittstock Museum acquired a contemporary model of the Super-Hindenburg for its collection.
