Oradour-sur-Glane





This gallery will depict the massacre that took place on Saturday, 10th of June 1944, in the village of Oradour-sur-Glane, in the Haute-Vienne region of France.
The village was far from any center of conflict; it never had an active resistance stronghold.
Yet men from the Der Führer Regiment of the 2nd Waffen SS Panzer Division Das Reich, drove into Oradour and killed everyone that they could find ~ a total of 642 men, women and children.
Afterwards, the village was looted and every building set on fire.
The village has been left as-is to remind us all to never forget.
