The Malmedy Massacre took place on December 17, 1944. After a short battle, 150 American soldiers surrendered to German troops. These soldiers were captured and subsequently shot without any apparent cause or trial. Ninety of the soldiers were killed. During the Dachau Trials in 1946, the German soldiers responsible for the massacre, and several others, were tried. Most officers were imprisoned for life, and only one was released. These documents summarize the events at Malmedy that resulted in the tragic deaths of 90 American soldiers.
