The statue of the little girl, Annchen, is in theatre square. Annchen von Tharau is a poem by Simon Dach, and the statue is of her. She has her back to the theatre because
Hitler gave a speech from it’s balcony in 1939.
Although there are sculptures in every city or town, Klaipeda - in my opinion - really abounds in interesting and special or unusual ones. Annchen has been described in a well-known poem and was probably quite an inspiration for the poet who wrote it.
