WWII veterans honor the Wereth 11

A memorial stands on a hill outside of Wereth, Belgium, Dec. 10, 2014. The memorial is a reminder of the heroic acts of 11 African American U.S. Soldiers during World War II. They took refuge in the small town, and after the Germans captured them, they refused to divulge information about the family who housed them. The 11 Soldiers were led from the city and executed.
