Today, being the 10th June, was the 75th anniversary of the massacre at Oradour sur Glane, near Limoge in France. I sure most guys on here know that, but if you don’t, go and Google it, ..........

Bit of a late reply, I`ve been there twice, a very odd feeling to the place.
It`s a long way to drive but definately worth a visit if you`re ever in France.
There is a very good website on the massacre.... https://www.oradour.info/
Man`s inhumanity to his fellow man knows no bounds....the village is shown in the opening scenes of the first ever episode of the World at War series.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0b4g4ZZNC1E

I’ve been there too, we rode down on motorcycles, in the summer of 2004, I don’t know if was my imagination, but I’m sure I could still smell burnt wood!
