ORADOUR-SUR-GLANE

On Saturday the 10th of June 1944, the small town of Oradour-sur-Glane in the Haute-Vienne Department of France was destroyed. The attack was carried out by soldiers of the Der Führer Regiment of the 2nd Waffen-SS Panzer Division Das Reich. On that day they killed a total of 642 men, women and children without giving any reasons for their actions and to this day there is no universally accepted explanation for the massacre. You can visit the site of the village which remains in the same state today as a memorial to those who died and to remind us of the horror that man can inflict.
