Dark Poutine - True Crime and Dark History

Episode 99 - Only days after the D-Day invasion 18 Canadians were taken as prisoners of war by the fanatical nazis in the 12 SS Panzer Division. The were led back to Abbaye d'Aredene in Saint-Germain-la-Blanche-Herbe, France, a complex of structures that have stood since 1766. Over two days, June 7 and 8, 1944, 18 Canadian POW's, belonging to the North Nova Scotia Highlanders and the Sherbrooke Fusiliers  were murdered by men reporting to Waffen-SS Brigadeführer Kurt "Panzer" Meyer, who was later charged and convicted of war crimes for his hand in these and other murders of Canadian POWs at the hands of his troops.
