Walthère Dewé was the Director of Telephones of Liège and head of the clandestine intelligence network “La Dame Blanche” or “The White Lady” during the First World War. He died in 1944, during the Second World War, while participating in a rescue operation of one of the members of his resistance network renamed “Clarence” at that time.
A colossal statue of the White Lady, with her finger over her mouth to symbolize the secrecy of the clandestine intelligence services, and a commemorative chapel pays tribute to this figure of the Belgian resistance.
Next to the memorial lies a small path leading to Rue des Tawes, where a stone with a medallion of the hero is also a tribute to the resistance network.
You can discover the monument thanks to the guided tours offered by the Liège Tourist Office. The Walthère Dewé memorial can also be discivered on a hike of 11km suggested by the Sentiers de Grande Randonnée in the release of the new topo-guide GR412 – Sentiers des Terrils. This includes the Boucle des Coteaux hike, during which you can discover the nature of Liège.
