I visited this place about 12 years ago. It is indeed a sobering experience...
there are no added memorials, signs or 'helpful' posters, just the ruins of the village including the molten mass of the church bell which fell to the ground through the burned out rafters of the tower. The church was where the women and children fled for sanctuary and protection - to no avail as they were all killed.
At the entrance to the area a little way from the village is the information area which tells the story of what happened.
