The monument commemorates the German playwright and writer Gotthold Ephraim Lessing, one of the most important playwrights of the 18th century.

The sculpture, created by Siegfried Charoux, was made in 1935 and placed in Judenpl (Jewish Square). The Nazis removed the statue in 1939 to use the statue’s metal to make weapons. In 1968 the sculpture was re-created by the same artist, but placed elsewhere. In 1981 the statue was moved to its original location.
