huge monument of karl marx in chemnitz.

historical background:

in 1953 chemnitz was renamed to karl-marx-stadt (karl-marx-city) by the east german government. the bombed inner city was replaced by other buildings including an over sized head of karl marx (10m high!). behind the monument marx' on the wall of another building, the communist manifesto is quoted (also in big letters). in english, french, german and russian it says: "workers of all countries, unite!!"
in 1990, 70% of the inhabitants voted for renaming the city to its original name: chemnitz. however, after a lively debate, they decided to keep the monument, as it had become a part of the city.
