War Memorial Renesse

A white rubble stone statue of a female in regional costume holding an executed resistance fighter, placed on a square pedestal. In the stretch of grass in front of the memorial two memorial plaques.

The War Memorial Renesse commemorates the ten resistance fighters who were executed by the German at the entrance of Moermond Castle on 10 December 1944 and the other civilians and soldiers of Schouwen-Duiveland who were killed in the Second World War and during hostilities in the Dutch East Indies (1945-1962).

The statue of the female holding a male victim refers to the execution of ten local resistance fighters on 10 December 1944. While trying to escape to the island of Noord-Beveland the ten local resistance fighters are being arrested by the Germans. As the German occupier is annoyed with the disappearance of the local population register, the local resistance fighters are sentenced to death by hanging in a drumhead court-martial. The execution takes place at the entrance of Moermond Castle.

One black plaque in the stretch of grass in front of the memorial also commemorates the other civilians and soldiers of Schouwen-Duiveland who were killed during World War II, the other black plaque commemorates the sixteen soldiers who were killed in hostilities in the Dutch East Indies (1945-1950).
