Oradour-sur-Glane 30km from the cottage
Oradour sur Glane the 'Village of the Martyrs' is nearby. It stands as a memorial, exactly as it was left by its community that were tragically slaughtered. Over 70 years ago, on 10 June 1944, the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in Haute-Vienne in Nazi-occupied France was destroyed, when 642 of its inhabitants, including women and children, were massacred by a German Waffen-SS company. The site itself and its museum are well worth a visit.
