Monument of resistance on the Domplein
Lest we forget — On May 4, 1949, Dutch Remembrance Day, this statue was unveiled. It was created by sculptor Corinne Franzén-Heslenfeld. The woman carries a torch as a sign of resistance. The form of a woman was deliberately chosen because of the contribution of women to the resistance in Utrecht and elsewhere. Read the stories of women in the resistance Truus van Lier, Trui van Lier and Marie Anne Tellegen here.

On the base of the statue is a poem by Jan Engelman, which roughly translates to:
Remember your dead who during the good fight
have fought in righteousness.
Carry forth their flame, they have remained,
but in that glow our life renewes.
