Daniel Benchimol takes us back to the WWII Mont-Valérien Memorial, just around the corner from the Suresnes American Cemetery. Jenna, the onsite guide, delivers a grim account of how mass executions by the Germans took place, from the reading of the sentence, to the long wait before the execution, to the firing squad and the disposing of the bodies.
