Have you noticed the missing face in the "Victims of national socialism" scene (in the top-right picture)?

The fountain in front of the town hall was a political issue for many years. The subject of controversial discussion both in public and in the local council was the fact that living people were depicted and above all the context.

A Hechingen councillor and fountain critic recognised himself in one scene of the newly erected fountain in the role of the "Jew pursuer". Did the sculptor Klaus Ringwald want to subsequently punish critics? A two-year legal battle ensued, resulting in the artist having to make the face unrecognisable.
