    I once had the location of a village that was razed to the ground at the SS retreated across France, as I remember the populas was rounded up into the church and torched. all I know is that it is N W of (I think) Angers. I know the village was never rebuilt and is kept as a war Museum.

    Can any one help as I am off touring France in about 3 weeks.
    Much appreciated.

    Oradour Sur Glane ?

    If it is the right place Kands wrote about it here

    Sounds like a very moving place to visit!

    Its quite away south of Angers, nearer to Limoges.
    More info can be found <<here>>
    We are hoping to pay a visit whilst at the Parc Verger meet in August.

    We visited orador sur glane for the second time this year, yes it is very thought provoking. we bought a dvd of the history of the event which has english subtitles,
    we found it very good, although it may not suite some people. There is a nice aire there which we have stayed on, its well worth a visit.
