Resistance Memorial. Center wall with Our Lady of the Good Dive

. [1]
The chapel is dedicated to Our Lady of the Good Dive. On the middle wall there is a picture of this symbol of the people in hiding in Limburg, also known as divers. It was invented by Lodewijk Bleys [2] from Roermond. Next to it the later added names of fallen resistance fighters. A poster was made of this symbolic figure, which many people in hiding (dutch: onderduikers) [3], including non-Catholics, hung above their beds.
