France, Germany Remember Nazi Massacre in French Village
Tuesday, 11 June 2019 18:03 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The French village of Oradour-sur-Glane looks the same today as it did 75 years ago -- when Nazi troops entered the village, forced 642 residents into buildings and burned them to the ground. Anyone trying to escape was machine gunned to death.

French wartime leader-turned President Charles de Gaulle passed down orders that the village never be touched so the world could see another example of Nazi brutality.

French and German officials stood among the ruined buildings and rusted, burned-out cars to remember the Oradour-sur-Glane massacre, 75 years ago Monday.

The massacre took place just four days after allied forces landed on the beaches of Nazi-occupied northern France to liberate Europe from such barbarism. 

The reason for the murders in Oradour-sur-Glane has never been made clear but was believed to be revenge for the kidnapping of a German soldier by the French resistance.
