The Hildesheim Ulrichs bronze memorial plaque was unveiled at the Volkshochschule Hildesheim on August 21, 2002. On November 11, 2002, in the presence of numerous guests, Dr. Deufel, the city manager, is scheduled to dedicate the bronze plaque, which will be mounted on the building of the University for the Administration of Justice.

Members of the Hildesheim Gay group are holding discussions with city administrators in order to have a brass memorial plaque hung in the entrance of the Hildesheim Courthouse. Franz Karl of the Gay group chose this spot to make up for the unjust treatment Ulrichs got that made Ulrichs resign his post at the Hildesheim court:
