(4.9/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
A German Waffen-SS company surrounded Oradour-sur-Glane on June 10, 1944, and within hours killed 642 people, including women and children, and razed the village. After the war, French president Charles de Gaulle ordered that the village not be rebuilt on the site of the massacre. Instead it would be maintained as an everlasting remembrance of the cruelty of the Nazi occupation and a memorial to those who died. Near the entrance is a museum. Songs, poems, and videos from all over the world have immortalized the destruction of this quaint French town, known as the "martyred village."

  • I had read, I've seen reports, but here on-site you can imagine in this frozen village all the horror of the filthy beasts that are have crack down! and tell that young people are still attracted to extreme political or religious ideas?

  • We were able in this martyred city by a bright October Sun, and fortunately, so this visit is sad and moving. He left houses in ruins and not explanations, so imperative, review the story before. We were very fortunate to come across a man who works on the site and that, initially, has kindly answer two questions that I was asking him and who, finally, spent more than an hour to us explain the horror. This gentleman is so passionate and exciting 4 people, it's more than 50 people who listened to him. A huge thanks to you, Sir, you recognize, I think. Thanks to you, it is amazing to see how our 8 year old daughter remembers that visit. And so do we!
