Carl-Zuckmayer Denkmal

 

Carl Zuckmayer, born on 27.12.1896 in Nackenheim, went down in history as a playwright and poet, but also as a wine connoisseur and epicure. His breakthrough as a playwright came with his work "Der Fröhliche Weinberg", which was premiered in Berlin in 1926. The play embodied for him the love for the homeland and the wine, but many people from Nackenheim felt very offended because they recognized themselves in some immoral roles. In 1952 the municipality declared him an honorary citizen and from this day on the relationship between Carl and the Nackenheimers became much better again. Also the primary school in Nackenheim was named after him. On 18.01.1977 Carl Zuckmayer died at the age of 80 years. A few years later the Nackenheimers erected a monument to him in the form of a bust, which adorns the facade of the town hall and was made by the internationally renowned artist Ursula Bertram. The bust was aptly financed from the proceeds of wine sales at the Nackenheim wine festival.
