We are presently enjoying a stay at Parc Verger near Limoges in France and just 30 minutes away is the Martyr Village of Oradour-sur-Glane and we couldn't leave here without taking a look. It was a very worthwhile trip and if you are ever in the area I recommend that you visit. It will leave you feeling very sad, but its worth it nonetheless. If you do not know about this village there is plenty of reading on the web. but essentially on 10 June 1944, the idyllic French village of Oradour-sur-Glane was completely destroyed and 642 men, women and children were massacred by soldiers in Hitler's Waffen-SS. The ruins of the martyred village have been preserved in its entirety as a reminder of German barbarity. These are a few of the hundred or so pictures I took there today.
