Wednesday Video – A Visit to the Abbaye d’Ardenne

A modern visit to the Abbaye d’Ardenne near Caen, France, where 20 Canadian prisoners of war were executed by members of the 12th SS Panzer Division in June 1944.  The discovery of this “killing field” prompted one of the first war crimes convictions in Europe.
