    Absolutely personal experience and touch. Great work ... Hardly any photo can really "bring it over".

    These seven professors protested in 1837 against the abrogation of the liberal constitution in the Kingdom of Hanover and were dismissed - impressive monument!

    The Ensemble Göttinger Sieben by Floriano Bodini consists of several larger-than-life bronze sculptures. They were set up in 1998. Bodini's work is a memorial to the seven professors from the University of Göttingen who protested against the lifting of the constitution in the Kingdom of Hanover in 1837.

    The Göttingen Seven were seven professors at the University of Göttingen, including the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, who were German students at the university at the time. When the personal union of the Kingdom of Hanover with Great Britain ended in 1837, the reactionary King Ernst August I ascended the throne in Hanover. One of his first official acts was to repeal the liberal Hanoverian constitution of 1833, which contained some democratic elements for certain classes of the bourgeoisie. The professors put up a written protest against the measure. The king took this as an affront and then removed the seven of their office. Today the Göttingen Seven are an example of civil courage and the courage to be free.
    The monument was designed in 1998 by the Italian artist Floriano Bodini (1933-2005).
