On 23 December 2013 the Prime Minister, Xavier Bettel, and a government delegation laid a wreath of flowers at the foot of Cross Hinzert. The new government wanted to make this gesture at the beginning of its term in memory of those who contributed to the freedom and independence of Luxembourg.

Cross Hinzert was both the symbol of resistance and freedom of Luxembourg during World War II.
