All of Luxembourg hoped with the liberation in September 1944 that the war was finally over for the Grand Duchy.
The people did not expect the battle which broke out on 16 December 1944. The number of civil victims in Luxembourg alone is estimated at 500; in Belgium, 2,000 to 2,500 people died. Dead soldiers on both sides numbered in the tens of thousands.
