In Oradour-sur-Glane a horrible peace of history is written. On 10 June 1944 almost the whole village was slaughtered and set on fire. To never forget this drama the village has been kept in the same state since 1944 and the new Oradour-sur-Glane is build a couple miles further.
You can visit the marters village freely. You can access the village through the Centre de la mémoire. If you want to see the center you have to pay a small entrance fee. But those who want to know the through story will be glad to pay it.
