The theme of museum “Baugnez 44” is the Battle of the Bulge. At the end of the Second World War Hitler launched The Ardennes Offensive. Under the name “Wacht am Rhein” the German army was to break through the Allied linies, cross the Meuse and eventually conquer the port of Antwerp. Spearheads of the German armored divisions were trying to capture bridges over the Meuse as soon as possible. One of the armoured spearheads was Kampfgruppe Peiper. Peiper and his taskforce are known of the war crime at the village Baugnez. This museum is located right next to the crossing where on December 17, 1944 this tragedy happened. “Baugnez 44 Historical Center” wants to commemorate this war crime.
