Oradour-sur-Glane was a small town of about 600 people, who were murdered by the Hitler’s German SS Waffen troops on June 10, 1944, just 4 days after D-Day. They wanted to set an example to other towns that resistance of the Germans is futile and not to side with the Americans. The Nazi’s looted every house and business, killed every man, woman, and child in cold blood, then torched the whole town to burn it to the ground. The French Government has left the town exactly as it was from that day as a remembrance and memorial. One word etched in stone as we entered the town, “Remember.”

It is hard to believe any human being could do this.Why must history keep repeating itself?
