A poignant scene and reminder of times we all hope will never be re-visited again in Europe. Well captured.

I have known of this place for many years, I do want to visit one day. Thanks for this.
The introduction to the 1970s television documentary series The World at War is Laurence Olivier's description of the events of 10 June 1944.

Quote:Down this road, on a summer day in 1944 the soldiers came. Nobody lives here now. They stayed only a few hours. When they had gone, the community which had lived for a thousand years was dead.
The men were taken to garages and barns, the women and children were led down this road and they were driven into the church.
Here, they heard the firing as their men were shot. Then they were killed too. A few weeks later, many of those who had done the killing were themselves dead, in battle.
They never rebuilt Oradour. Its ruins are a memorial. Its martyrdom stands for thousands upon thousands of other martyrdoms.
