On June 10th, 1944, four days after the Normandy Landings, 642 people who lived in the village of Oradour-sur-Glane, among which 207 children, were slaughtered by the SS division Das Reich, while the village was pillaged and burned down. Kept as is, the site of the martyred village is today a place dedicated to memory and contemplation that illustrates the horror of barbarism.

The Memorial Centre situated nearby offers a permanent exhibition, ranging from the advent of Nazism to the story of the massacre of June 10th, 1944, as well as a reflection on peace and human rights.
