Heinrich Kunst founded the Low German theater group Ofenerdiek in the 1920s and in 1931 became a member of the Low German stage at the Oldenburg State Theater.
Since he was seen and heard on various stages, in films and on the radio, Heinrich became known nationwide.
He was a holder of the Federal Cross of Merit on ribbon and an honorary citizen of the municipality of Wiefelstede.
After his death, he bequeathed his farm, where he spent his entire life, to the community of Wiefelstede. The Heinrich Kunst e. V. restored the yard, which today serves as a meeting place and meeting place.
