Onze Lieve Vrouw van de Goeden Duik
This small shrine in honour of Our Lady of Good Shelter in the Dutch city of Maastricht was commissioned by the parents of four young men who survived the Second World War.
The men were captured by the Nazis in 1943, when they were found hiding in a farmer’s barn. However, two of them later managed to escape while the other two survived imprisonment.
The parents asked for Mary to be depicted as the protector of those who seek hiding from the enemy, as they attributed their sons’ survival to her.
