The Medal was instituted by the City of Ghent in 1945 to honour those of its citizens who had been active in wartime resistance to German occupation. A full-size example awarded to Roger Leon François is in the collection of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. (accession # 2005.25.5). The Medal is rare, especially in miniature.
