photos from our visit to Oradour-sur-Glane
This is the Limousin village which was destroyed by the SS on the 10th June 1944. 642 men, women and children were slaughtered. The village has been left untouched since that time, a war memorial in its own right. A new village was built on the outskirts of the old. If you find yourself near Limoges take the N141 north west for about 10 k, then the D9 for 9k, then step back in time.
