    The column was erected on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the peaceful revolution on the Nikolaikirchhof on October 9, 1999. It is modeled on the columns from the nave of the Nikolaikirche.

    Based on the prayers for peace in the Nikolaikirche, the protest conquered the public space in 1989. A pillar from the nave crowned with palm fronds has been reproduced on the square. The project by the Leipzig artist Andreas Stötzner symbolically carries the idea of new beginnings out of the church. Two thirds of the funds required for the construction were provided by donations from citizens, companies and institutions.
