More on the Battle of the Bulge
The Fort Devens Museum will focus again on the Battle of the Bulge which recently had its 75th anniversary. In honor of the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge, the museum presented a program in December highlighting the history of the Battle. Shirley resident, Joe Landry, talked about his own experiences in the Battle of the Bulge and his recent trip back to Europe to visit some of the same places he served seventy-five years ago.
This month, the focus is again on the Battle of the Bulge. On Saturday February 15th at 1:00 PM, come watch a docudrama depicting the true story of the “Wereth Eleven”, members of the 333rd Field Artillery Regiment tortured and massacred by Nazis after they had surrendered during the Battle of the Bulge. A monument has been erected in their memory at the Veterans Cemetery in Winchendon, MA. Hear the story behind the dedication and creation of the memorial.
The Fort Devens Museum is located on the 3rd floor of 94 Jackson Road, Devens and is wheelchair accessible. The museum is open from 10 AM to 3 PM on Tuesdays, Fridays, and the 3rd Saturday of each month. Admission to this event is free, but donations are appreciated.
