The Wereth Eleven

Their story was lost to history, until now. These eleven men were ruthlessly murdered by the Nazi SS during the Battle of the Bulge. Weaved together are exciting visual effects, never-before-seen archival footage, and compelling interviews to detail one of the least-known atrocities committed during World War II.
