This beautiful war-monument you can find in Noordwijk. It is designed by sculptor Corinne Franzen-Heslenfeld, born in The Hague, and, placed in Noordwijk on November 15th. 1952.

It is all made of white, natural stone and the young woman kneels with naked upper part of the body. She is in total devotion, looking down. She is partly Dutch, and partly Indonesian (named an Indo, or half-cast). The statue want to express her alliance with the war-victims of the colony of Dutch-Indies who gave their lives in freedom (1945-1950). The kneeling young Indo woman symbolizes this sacrifice with her body and attitude ... next to this war-monument is the socle, made of white, natural stone, too. Included the words of the prominent Wim Ramaker and Ben van Bohemen.

It is located on a small square, at the corner of the Rembrandtweg and the Berckelstraat, Noordwijk.
