The Statue of Liberty was erected in 1921 to commemorate the German landing on April 3, 1918. Ab Granit was responsible for the design work and the statue's appearance was designed by sculptor Bertel Nilsson. The Statue of Liberty has been controversial during and after the wars; it was dismantled during the Soviet lease and erected again in 1943. In 1946 the statue was dismantled again, but since 1960 the statue has been as it is now with the text ?For our freedom?.
