Oradour-sur-Glane, France

In June 1944, the French village Oradour-sur-Glane was completely destroyed and 642 men, women and children were murdered by SS- soldiers. The ruins of the village have been preserved as a reminder of German barbarity.

 

This was the car of the local doctor, who came to visit one of his patients, and was beaten out of his car and instantaneously murdered.

 

The village is completely the same as just after the massacre and is a national monument.
