Lord Mayor Thomas Wimmer at the "Rama dama" ("Let’s clean up") event on the Rindermarkt square
The initiator of the rubble-clearing action, in which several thousand citizens participated, was Lord Mayor Wimmer (1887 – 1964), who also pitched in himself. Symbolising the motivation of Munich’s population to reconstruct the city together, the motto of the event became a familiar quotation.
Georg Fruhstorfer, 29 October 1949
