Searching for Augusta: The Forgotten Angel of Bastogne follows the story of Augusta Chiwy, a black Belgian nurse whose volunteer service in a US Army 10th Armored Division medical aid station during World War II's Battle of the Bulge exemplifies the best of the human spirit in the worst of times.
This incredible true story begins with two nurses, Renee LeMaire and Augusta Chiwy, as they treat patients in the Bastogne aid station. Renee was killed on Christmas Eve and became famous as ""The Angel of Bastogne."" Augusta's story was lost to history for sixty-five years, until military historian and author Martin King found her living alone in Brussels. Augusta Chiwy's story is one of courage, compassion, and great individual heroism in the face of bigotry and racial discrimination.
