Trip Report The inevitable sadness of Oradour-sur-Glane

Jump to last reply

I have been to the martyred town or Oradour perhaps 3 times in my life, most recently last Monday. It is about 25km from Limoges, which is an area almost completely spared during World War II.

Unfortunately, D-Day on June 6, 1944 started certain things in motion, and the horrible massacre of Oradour took place on June 10, 1944. The ruins are still in place, and here is my report of the latest visit: http://tinyurl.com/oradourglane
