Cemetery notes and/or description:
10 June 1944, in retaliation for the sabotage attacks by the french resistance, the idyllic village of Oradour sur Glane was razed to the ground and 642 innocent residents were massacred by the Waffen SS soldiers. A new village was built after the war but the ruins of the martyred village have been preserved to bear silent witness to the atrocities of war, to serve as a reminder of barbarity, to commemorate the dead and ensure that nobody forgets. Each entrance to the ruins bears a notice that say " Rmemeber ", and having seen the wals, wrecked cars, and abandoned houses you will be haunted by this image for a long time.
Let us never forget the people of Oradour sur Glane.
