A German dramatist and novelist, Gerhart Hauptmann was born in 1862 in Obersalzbrunn, part of the Kingdom of Prussia. Today, the town is known as Szczawno-Zdrój in Poland. Hauptmann went on to become one of the most important promoters of literary naturalism, authoring numerous novels, novellas, and plays. Originals were cast in honor of his 60th birthday.
