    Default Oradour-sur-Glane June 2017


    On 10 June 1944, the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in Haute-Vienne in Nazi-occupied France was destroyed, when 642 of its inhabitants, including women and children, were massacred by a Nazi Waffen-SS company.

    Wow you have some very moving images there MD!

    That third shot is...well its hard to find the right word to use with the history of the site, but the image is wonderful, the warm rust and its crumpled stance, a place I'd like to visit too.

    Thanks for enlightening me!

    Very nice Matt, must have been a very atmospheric feeling when walking around. It was for me many years ago.
