Are you familiar with the Chenogne massacre? I have endeavored to unearth primary-source documents pertaining to the massacre and the battle for Chenogne on January 1, 1945. Here are the first three records (with many more to come): 

Interrogation Report 2, CCA, 11th Armd Div, 1 Jan 45
Interrogation Report 3, CCA, 11th Armd Div, 2 Jan 45
IPW Team 52, 11th Armd Div, 1 Jan 45

The Burnotte Farm served as a German station on January 1, 1945. It was also the scene of a massacre after the building caught fire and Germans inside attempted to surrender.
