Kurt Eisner was a German politician and journalist. As a socialist journalist and statesman, he organized the Socialist Revolution that overthrew the Wittelsbach monarchy in Bavaria in November 1918.

Eisner was assassinated in Munich when a German nationalist shot him in the back on 21 February 1919

The abstract glass cube by Munich artist Rotraud Fischer is accessible. A black whole painted on the glass reminds the beholder of the assassination, while an Eisner quote has been engraved into the glass
