Belgium: WW2 Medal for the Civil - Unarmed 
Resistance against the Nazis. 
With the inscription "Restiterunt" (Latin for: 
"They Resisted")
Signed by George Vindevogel. 
The medal was instituted in 1951 and was 
awarded to civilians had been recognized as 
actively resisted the German occupational 
forces in Belgium. 
More than 70.000 Belgians participated in the 
various groups of Resistance during the 
German Occupation. Aside from sabotage of 
military infrastructure in the country and 
assassinations of collaborators, these groups 
also published large numbers of underground 
newspapers, gathered intelligence and 
maintained various escape networks that 
helped Allied airmen escape from German-
occupied Europe.
The Belgian Resistance smuggled at least 
3.500 downed airmen back to England at a 
time when there was a great shortage of 
aircrews while some estimates put the number 
of resistance members killed, at over 19.000.
The medal is rare.
