Weimar is famous for its cultural heritage. Its oldest records go back to 899. Weimar's cultural heritage is vast. It is most often recognised as the place where Germany's first democratic constitution was signed after the First World War, giving its name to the Weimar Republic period in German politics, of 1918–1933. However, the city was also the focal point of the German Enlightenment and home of the leading characters of the literary genre of Weimar Clacissism, the writers Goethe and Schiller. The city was also the birthplace of the Bauhaus movement, founded in 1919 by Walter Gropius, with artists Wassily Kandinski, Paul Klee, Oskar Schlemmer, and Lyonel Feininger teaching in Weimar's Bauhaus School. Many places in the city centre have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites.Max Meckel, an architect from Frankfurt, built the Herz-Jesu-Kirche from 1889 to 1891 in the style of the Italian renaissance. It is the center of the catholic community in Weimar. The Franz Liszt Memorial Organ” has been consecrated in the Herz-Jesu Church on May 8, 2011. The organ was financed by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Society) with almost €1,000,000.
