  • Well presented and thought provoking. Hard to comprehend the violence but shouldn't be forgotten.
  • Stunning and humbling, decimated village preserved as a stark reminder of what can happen when politics goes wrong and wars take place... Every one should visit and spend some time here.
  • A must see memorial! This is one of the most impressive memorials I've seen. This village, after the massacre, has been frozen in time. You'll start your visit in the small, but very interesting museum. Next up is the village. You're requested to visit it in silence. I can assure you, that won't be a problem. If you'll close your eyes, you can imagine how people used to live here. I got goosbumps all over. If you are about 100 miles from here, it's worth the trip.
  • This is a truly amazing, thought sobering place. A remarkable memorial. Very emotional place, you can't help but be deeply moved.
  • This is an excellent interpretive centre for the oradour massacre memorial village. Gives a lot of context as to why the nazis ended up massacring most of the inhabitants of the village. Walking around the village is a very moving experience.
