Hanna Bieber-Boehm (1851 to 1910) was politically active in the women's movement and founded a home for "fallen" girls in Neuzelle. Her grave monument is located in a wooded area of the Neuzelle Monastery Foundation. It is an urn grave from 1910 or a little later, built of Kirchheim shell limestone as a symmetrical three-winged structure in Art Nouveau style. Prior to the measure, the monument lay largely hidden in rubble among shrubs for decades. On the basis of a photo and the measurement of the parts found, a drawing reconstruction was carried out. After the salvage of all fallen components, the entire existing stone substance was cleaned, repaired and restored. Missing parts could be reconstructed from the appropriate limestone, so that the monument could be rebuilt from the existing and completed stones.
