Monument to a huckup in Hildesheim, Germany

This monument dedicated to a legendary figure named Huckup was created by Carl Röder in 1905. The Huckup is a sort of Aufhocker, an undead who bothers hikers. I don’t give much for the idea of getting haunted by an undead but I like the interpretation for the Hildesheim Huckup.

The poem at the monument outlines that the Huckup is just an impersonation of guilty conscience.
