    Very interesting Paul, some excellent images. I visited there in the late 1960's on the way back to England from a couple of years in South Africa. I read about Oradour in the Cape Times and planned my return home to make sure I went there. An unforgettable experience, as I know you found it to be. Thank you for sharing, regards, Clive.

                    Thanks for sharing Paul, the "then and now" in several of the photo's is a nice touch.

                    Like Ade, Oradour is also on my list to go in the hopefully not too distant future!

                      Whilst in Montpellier last week I visited a Resistance Museum and noticed a couple of Oradour images, taken not long after the massacre. My copies are not too good, but give a feel for how it was at the time. Clive.
