Some history from WW2 75 years ago,

75 years ago today, one of the worst atrocities of the 2nd world war was committed against the occupants of Oradour Sur Glane, France. Since the entire village was massacred, it has been left as a memorial, exactly as it was as the Nazis left it. The burnt out houses, shops and garages still contain the remnants of individual's possessions. This car, which had pulled up at the main junction, along with all others in the village, has been sitting in the same place ever since.
A very moving experience for those who get the chance to visit.
