The "Quand-Même" statue located right in front of St Christopher's Cathedral was sculpted by Antonin Mercié (1845-1916).
The artist portrayed an Alsatian woman in traditional clothing; one of her hands supports a fallen man while the other brandishes his rifle as she turns toward the authors of such misfortune.
The base of the sculpture features the medallions of Thiers, who did not want to give Belfort to Germany, and Colonel Denfert-Rochereau, who triumphantly defended it.
