We visited the village of Oradour Sur Glan today. Every single building in the village was destroyed by the Nazis near the end of WWII. The Nazis also brutally murdered 642 people of the 647 people who lived in the village. Charles DeGaulle decided the destroyed village needed to be preserved so we would not forget the horrors of WWII.
A museum was built to explain the timeline, background and history of the war and the massacre.
This visit was a thought provoking moving experience and definitely gave us all a lot to reflect upon.
