On 1 June 2013 in Klaipėda on the central post office building while playing the carillon there was unveiled a memorial plaque for famous Lithuanian poet Henrikas Radauskas who in 1936 worked here at Klaipėda radio as an announcer.   
Henrikas Radauskas (born in 1910 Cracow – died in 1970 Washington) – one of the most famous Lithuanian poets modernists, aesthete. His poetry is distinguished for diversity of colors, images and sounds. Poet in nature, environment, domestic life is looking for beauty, aesthetic emotions, artistic sense. His poems often resemble the directed play of images and words, in which we see the main and secondary characters, circumstances, relationships, germs and upshots of events. In his poetry irony combines with strong image of life tragicalness. A short episode of H.Radauskas life is related to Klaipėda: in 1936 he worked as an announcer at Klaipėda radio, located in the central post office building; also he worked as radio presenter in Lithuanian and German languages. Later H.Radauskas worked for the Ministry of Education in Book Publishing Committee and wrote poems.     
The idea to perpetuate his memory in Klaipėda was generated by screenwriter and journalist Pranas Morkus, whereas writers Juozas Šikšnelis and Vytautas Čepas, with the help of sculptor Algirdas Bosas, implemented this idea.
