10740 Fallersleben           Discovered 1988 Sept. 8 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.
For his "Unpolitische Lieder", liberal patriotic songs, the poet, writer, librarian and literary historian August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben (1798-1874) was ousted from his professorship of the German language in Breslau. He wrote the text of "Lied der Deitschen", the German national anthem.
