(Twee weken later op 19 december 1952 onthult koningin Juliana het monument De Dokwerker in Amsterdam. De Dokwerker is een beeld en tevens monument op het J.D. Meijerplein in Amsterdam ter nagedachtenis aan de Februaristaking van 1941. Het standbeeld is in opdracht van het Amsterdamse gemeentebestuur ontworpen en gemaakt door de beeldhouwer Mari Andriessen. Willem Termetz heeft in 1951 voor het beeld geposeerd. Termetz was een Haarlemse timmerman annex aannemer die Andriessen al voor de oorlog kende. Willem Termetz stond vanwege het karakter van het beeld niet te trappelen om als beeld te worden vereeuwigd. Uiteindelijk heeft Godfried Bomans hem overgehaald wel te poseren.)
