        We [my Dad, the Wife, and I] were just at the site, back in early September . . . and noticed something strange. When going through the Museum/Visitor Center adjacent to the village, I noticed that of all the German Officers mentioned - I found only the name of Adolf Diekmann being misspelled. If I am not mistaken - in only the few places it is written . . . it is spelled, "Dickman". For us who's native language is English, that spelling could bring a few chuckles . . . but I was wondering - could this spelling error be intentional?

        In our journey, we also travelled to view the burial site of Diekmann . . . and it was surprising to us, how so few that were at the cemetery that day actually recognized the name. We even found some Frenchmen who had never heard it before. They were all well aware of the action at Oradour . . . but had no knowledge for the name, Adolf Diekmann.

        I am just curious . . . would anyone know why the name was misspelled at the Oradour Visitor Center?
