Photographer's Note

The last in a short series of photographs taken at the memorial village of Oradour-sur-Glane in the Limousin région of France. The pictures were taken on a bright summer's day, which, for me, heightened the poignancy of the visit.

The story of the village and the atrocities carried out there in June 1944 shortly after the D Day Landings can be read in an article on the English Wikipedea website, here:

For Francophones, the French Wikipedea site has a slightly different and longer article about the village that can be read here:
