The expressionist drama Hinkemann is a tragedy in three acts by the writer Ernst Toller. Hinkemann was born in 1921/22 in the fortress prison at Lower Schönfeld, where Ernst Toller was imprisoned from 1920 to 1924. The tragedy appeared in 1923 under the title The German Hinkemann. In Eugen Hinkemann, the hero of his tragedy, premiered in 1923, Toller symbolizes the physical and psychological integrity of the returnees, the grotesque cruelty of a society that was still tearing itself apart in peacetime, and - the desperate will to defend itself against doom: those who have no strength to dream , has no strength to live.
