The Malmedy massacre was a war crime in which 84 American prisoners of war were murdered by their German captors during World War II. The massacre was committed on December 17, 1944, by members of Kampfgruppe Peiper (part of the 1st SS Panzer Division), a German combat unit, during the Battle of the Bulge. Today the whole area is dedicated to remembering this event. To the left of the field is a museum that displays many historical artifacts dating back to this time. On the street corner opposite this field is a large monument dedicated to those who lost their lives on this spot.
