Lichtbringer at Böttcherstraße

Bernhard Hoetger's 1936 relief Lichtbringer at the entrance to Böttcherstraße, a street in the historic centre of Bremen, Germany. The artist and his patron, Ludwig Roselius, intended to promote a Nazi worldview and to glorify the victory of Adolf Hitler "over the powers of darkness", but Hitler's reaction was negative.
