02/09/2018 - Thanking them for there service
Hello Warren Judge here from Oregon Illinois. I just wanted to say hello and that I’m honored to be able to visit the web site of these fallen heroes. As a model builder and military miniature figure painter I’m working on a figure in honor of the 333rd FAB and one of the soldiers of the 11 Wereth. I don’t have much to go on other than what I’ve seem in the movie and what I’ve been able to see on The internet. The figure I’m doing is of a radioman holding the radio phone in his hand and the radio pack on His back. I’m trying to find as much info on who would of been the radioman in the unit and to honor him as well as the unit. Either thank you for such a beautiful web page and the great honor you do to remember these men. Here is my email warren.judge@ aol.com I’ll keep you posted and can send picks as I go along to finish this figure. The figure will be display at the Chicago Military Miniature Society of Illinois At the Marriott In Schaumberg iIllinois on October 19-21 God bless Warren Judge
03/09/2018 - Visit to Wereth memorial to black GIs
Was very moved that local Belgian family saw fit to build a monument that the US Army neglected to do.
18/06/2018 - Hero's live forever
Watching the movie of these fine men brought tears to my eyes. As a former service member I have an understanding of the love we have for each other and my heart breaks for those young men who died in that manner. Those men are hero's and will never be forgotten. To our friends who brought this memorial to life.....thank you for caring.
05/05/2018 - Wereth 11 Memorial
We were quite moved when visiting the Memorial in April 2018. I had been somewhat aware of the massacre from a TV documentary and our local guide Henri Mignon included a stop at the Memorial during a Battle of the Bulge tour. It is fitting that the Langer family kept the memory of this incident alive and it now has official recognition.
15/03/2018 - Wereth Memorial
My family and I were privileged to visit the Wereth Memorial in April 2017 during our tour of Germany, Belgium, and France. My grandfather served in the Battle of the Bulge with the 3rd Battalion, 504th PIR, 82nd Airborne and we were visiting some of the sites along their route of march. I have the utmost respect for the brave men of the Wereth 11 and all of our veterans past and present. Thank you for all that you do to keep their memory and sacrifices alive.
16/02/2018 - Wereth 11 Memorial
In 2015 while visiting Belgium I knew of the Wereth 11 but didn't know where the memorial was. By accident I came across the memorial and stayed to pay my respects to those brave soldiers. Later I visited Henri Chappel Cemetery and again thought of those and the thousands who gave of themselves for our freedom. My God continue to bless all those souls.

11/01/2018 - Wereth 11
I had no idea this happened. THANK YOU for enlightening us.
26/11/2017 - Thank you
This is such an incredible story. I had no idea about these men and their stories before watching documentary. Thank you all for giving these men what others failed to give them, love and respect for a job well done. We don’t learn about stuff like this in American History. They fought and died for America but their stories are mysteries to most of us. I already appreciate you guys, it’s heart warming to know others care. Thank you. I hope to visit the site someday
01/06/2017 - James Leatherwood
My grandmother was born and raised in Pontotoc County, Mississippi. While reading the book "The Lost Eleven" I saw that Private First Class James Leatherwood lived there too. The Langer family showed courage and compassion helping Mr. Leatherwood, at the risk of their own lives. May James Leatherwood's soul find the peace it so truly deserves.

12/04/2017 - Whereth 11 visited
We (from The Netherlands) visited the memorial in 2015. We where deeply moved, what a tragedy, what a horrible crimes. Thank you for this monument and this website. It is in these troubled times more important then ever to understand that history will repeat if not taking the lessons from it and preventing new massacres in Europe. May these brave men rest in peace, in God's Light. Please
18/01/2017 - To you, the Wereth 11
What an incredible story, what an incredible tragedy.....I only know of you from looking at documentaries on ROKU and randomly picking your story. The excerpt on this site is from that documentary. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice. I will remember. I only hope that others will learn your story.

11/10/2016 - Wereth's 11 Men
It is so good to know that there are people in the world like the Langer family and that the 11 men met them and had some kindness shown them prior to the loss of their lives.
10/09/2016 - Site visit
I have never heard of this before. Those men paid a huge sacrifice for who they were. History must be studied so it doesnt repeat its self. 1SG-Ret USA.

Thank you for constructing the memorial and this web page so that we can remember these brave men who gave answered the call of duty. And so that we never forget how horrible war truly is, so that we can aspire to never wage war again. May they rest in peace.

07/08/2016 - Mémoire en ces moments d'intolérance....
Immense respect pour ces soldats américains victime de la brutalité, l'intolérance des hommes. Que l'avenir nous préserve de ne pas répéter l'histoire.
10/06/2016 - Memorial Ceremony 2010
I attended the Memorial in 2010, I had only heard about The Wereth 11 3 weeks prior from a newspaper article in the Stars and Stripes. My 3 children sat at the table with Hermann and Tina and I was in awe of the stories they shared about that day and they continue to talk about it to this day. It was emotional walking those steps they walked that freezing night and standing on the ground in which they took their last breaths in defense of our Nations. Such a moving tribute honoring their lives and it has never left me. So grateful to the Langer family beyond words. Looking forward to returning.
28/04/2016 - Just read about the great memorial
I moved to the Netherlands in June and I have been amazed at the things I have learned about this country. I work in Schinnen for the Army. I will be attending the ceremony in May. I am very excited! I am so thankful that people like this great family existed back then and continue to do great things for a people who have suffered so much. Annette Sanders
02/04/2016 - Wereth 11
This information is hidden in american history . Thank you for all that you have done. When I launch my site I will share the info and your site. Thank you Wereth 11 for your service and ultimate sacrifice.
28/02/2016 - Visited the Memorial
I had the opportunity to visit Belgium last year, and Wereth was at the top of my list to visit. I had seen 'The Wereth Eleven' on t.v. several times and felt a necessity to visit. Although touching and beautiful, the Memorial is quite insignificant in comparison to the treatment these men went through from the enemies in the war, and at home. The fact that the Memorial has no U.S. government involvement in its creation sickens me! The fact that this privately funded and built Memorial is the only one to honor the black troops and their huge contributions to a successful outcome of WWII is appalling! Plese keep up YOUR good work!
