Re: Oradour-Sur-Glane....Mans inhumanity to man....

Great pics. I have just put one of my children on ebay to fund a 7-14.

I think the place is badly served by its new visitor centre which doesn't serve the site specifically but generalises about atrocities. And this particular atrocity, though sadly common in the eastern theatre, is unique on the Western front. As far as Jersey goes, this was the only bit of occupied Britain and the German forces were ordered to be the ne plus ultra of gentlemanly conduct (in the hope that the rest of Britain would feel less apprehensive about German occupation). If you think that's how the occupying forces behaved generally then you need to read some history or look again at the pictures.

These are taken with the 9-18 and the 12-60 and are pretty much SOOC.
