On 10 June 1944, the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in Haute-Vienne in then Nazi occupied France was destroyed, when 642 of its inhabitants,
including women and children, were massacred by a Nazi Waffen-SS company. A new village was built nearby after the war, but
French president Charles de Gaulle ordered the original maintained as a permanent memorial and museum. For more information click here.
