The memorial to the fallen of the First World War has stood since 1926 in the East Frisian district town of Aurich on the corner of Bahnhofsstraße and Burgstraße. The monument was erected at the suggestion of a citizens' initiative. The latter had launched a competition a year earlier, which was won by the Düsseldorf sculptor Joseph Hammerschmidt with his design. The monument commemorates the soldiers of the infantry regiment "Duke Friedrich Wilhelm von Braunschweig" (East Frisian) No. 78 and the Reserve Infantry Regiment No. 92 who fell in the First World War.
