Hi all,

Appreciate this is not really urbex as such (it's more a visitors attraction!) but it may be of interest to some people here for a visit, it also has an interesting, if dark history and is a good example of what happens if it is left for over 70 years.

Mods - If this isn't urbex, please remove!

History:

Oradour is a small village in Southern Central France, in June 1944 a Waffen SS division went through and shot all male villagers, rounding up the women and children and locking them in the church, before setting it on fire. Those that attempted to escape were gunned down. Overall 642 were killed with only a handful of survivors. The village has been left in the original state and turned into a memorial for what happened.

Interesting little village, some truly awful things happened over the period of the 2nd world war. This is dark. Nice photos though.

Should be in EU section though. But other than that, I like it :thumb
