The monument was conceived at a time of deteriorating relations between the reactionaries and the reformers of the civic movement within Prussia. The monument is of cast iron, a technique en vogue at the time. Its younger socket brick building is faced with grey Silesian granite and was designed by the Prussian architect Heinrich Strack and realised by the Prussian engineer Johann Wilhelm Schwedler.
Its centerpiece is a tapering turret of 60 Prussian feet People who had earlier welcomed and benefited from Napoleon's reforms and who, like those in other nations had been inspired by his earlier "Republican" ideals of emancipating commoners as citizens, started to resist when he betrayed these ideals by making himself Emperor, levying burdensome compulsory contributions for his projects designed to aggrandize himself and his family, impoverishing not only his own people, but those of other nations, and above all bringing about the deaths of thousands in seemingly unending wars.
In the defeated and intimidated king, forced into a coalition with France since ,  against the will of his people refused the risky attempt to shake off the French supremacy in the wake of Napoleon's defeats in Russia. Ludwig Yorck , commanding the Prussian units supporting the French, had declared their neutrality towards the Russians without royal accord. In early irregular units, guerrillas lacking royal sanction, began to form, swearing their allegiance to the German Fatherland rather than to the king.
The hesitant king could not stop this anymore, but was forced to enact it on March 17 in his address entitled An mein Volk "To My People". However, this civic act of initiating Prussia's participation in the War of the Sixth Coalition was distasteful to the monarch, who again and again delayed implementing his promise of 22 May to introduce a parliament and a constitution for the entire kingdom.
The ponderous officialese name evoked many alternative names developed for the monument. Kreuzberg monument, however, there are at least five more monuments on the Kreuzberg sparsed in Victoria Park , which covers most of that hill , Kriegsdenkmal auf dem Kreuzberge war monument on the Kreuzberg, somewhat indifferentiated , National-Monument , Schinkeldenkmal i.
Schinkel monument, however, it is not a monument of Schinkel, but one by Schinkel , Siegesdenkmal i. Between and the Victoria Park Viktoriapark was laid out around the monument. The monument, topped by an iron cross , became name-giving for the hill it stands on, before mostly called Tempelhofer Berg , but also denoted by many other names in its history. Hundred years after the inauguration of the monument, the VIth borough of Berlin , established on 1 October and provisionally named Hallesches Tor , was renamed into Kreuzberg on 27 September The compulsory contributions to France thaler On 17 March , when the king had jumped on the bandwagon for the liberation wars, he established the military decoration of the Iron Cross , backdated to March 10, late Queen Louise's birthday.
The national monument is crowned by an Iron Cross. In Johann Heinrich Strack proposed a socket building to elevate the monument, and King William I of Prussia , in personal union also German Emperor, ordered its realisation in In Guido von Madai , president of the royal police, decreed a maximum height of buildings in the adjacent streets to uphold the visibility of the monument. The ordinance, however, was annulled by the groundbreaking "Kreuzberg judgement" of the Prussian Royal administrative court , stating that the police had exceeded its authority to ensure public security.
The monument was included in the Nazi plans for rebuilding Berlin, but only preparations materialised. Ernst Sagebiel oriented his Tempelhof Airport building towards the monument so that the central hall's front on the forecourt of the airport and one edge of the monument's octagonal groundplan are parallel.
As seen from the monument today's Platz der Luftbrücke in front of the airport opens as a square, encircled by buildings of similar heights except for the taller central hall of the airport mostly realised. The then planned axis consisting of a promenade and series of waterfalls cascading down the Kreuzberg hill towards the square was never realised, the interjacent block of houses remained untouched.
The casts were relocated from the open socket building in the late s. In November the smashed southern edge of the socket octagon was reconstructed.
The groundplan of the monument is a Greek cross with its arms being of equal length but shorter than the width of their ends. Its twelve edges are each dedicated to one battle of the Liberation Wars. The somewhat wider ends of the four arms are reserved for the four main battles with golden inscriptions. Above each socket is a niche with the iron cast statue of a genius symbolising with their decoration and accessories the respective battle.
The niches are in the actual structure of the monument tapering off to the top crowned again by an Iron Cross. Originally Christian Daniel Rauch and Christian Friedrich Tieck had been commissioned to design and model each six statues.
However, both were too busy and partially not in Berlin so that the creation of the statues was always on delay. The informations in the table follow Nungesser. Elsfleth in Oldenburg was never part of Prussia, but influence in design is visible. Wolfshagen a locality of Uckerland , Monument for the Liberations Wars. There are more monuments in the park, but rather on street level, and not on the Kreuzberg, such as the well known The rare haul by Ernst Herter , a herm to Ludwig Uhland by Max Kruse, aluminum replica or the monument to the raped women.

Since the beginning of the s drastic devaluations of several European currencies as well as the sustained weakness of the dollar have markedly impaired the price competitiveness of those countries whose currencies are linked to the German mark.
For Austria's export and tourism sector, the weakness of the currencies of important trading partners, Italy in particular, constitutes a serious challenge. The revised WIFO exchange rate index, with as the base year, will improve the analysis of the macroeconomic effects of changes in the exchange rates.
The index measures the relation between the schilling and a "basket of currencies" from 23 OECD countries.
The weight of each currency is based on the importance of each country in Austria's foreign trade. As in the old index the international purchasing power of the schilling is mainly determined by the exchange rate of the schilling against the German mark. The weight of the German mark rose from The share of the dollar sank by 2.
The weight of the Swiss franc dropped sharply to fifth place, from 6. The British pound 4. With a weight of 3.
