I have wanted to visit the martyr village of Oradour-sur-Glane ever since we arrived here in 2002.
Eventually I will be able to do this on May 9 /10th this year and I will post photographs ( which by law cannot be used for any commercial gain ) of the visit. :FRA:

A plaque in the Memorial crypt.

10 June 1944

642 inhabitants of
Oradour-sur-Glane

192 men 240 women
And 205 children
Savagely massacred
by the Nazis.
The village burned
And entirely destroyed



Of all the seeds entrusted to the earth,
the blood shed by the martyrs
is the one that gives the quickest harvest


Honoré de Balzac. 1799-1850
