Oradour Sur Glane


This aire is built on the north side of the new town built in the 1950s. (45.9353, 1.02514)

On 10 June 1944, the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in Haute-Vienne in Nazi-occupied France was destroyed, when 642 of its inhabitants, including women and children, were massacred by a German Waffen-SS company.

A new village was built nearby after the war, but French president Charles de Gaulle ordered the original maintained as a permanent memorial and museum.

A very moving place to visit. So many images.
