At the heart of the Haute Vienne region of France, there is a village which lays some 10 kms from Limoges! The name of this village is Oradour sur Glane. On the 10 th of June 1944, this quaint village was the scene of a barbaric massacre, at the hands of the evil Nazi's. Over 150 heavily armed SS soldiers entered this peaceful village, and rounded up 642 men, women, and children. After hearing false reports that they were part of the resistance movement, upon orders, these vile men, systematically murdered these innocent civilians, with few survivors! Before fleeing the scene, they torched the village, in an attempt to erase the atrocities. Under orders of France's General de Gaulle, the remains of the village have been preserved, as a reminder of what happened on that fateful day.
