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.

Depends what your definition of the Western Front is. There was Marzabotto in Italy, and Lidice in Czechoslovakia.

If you have the opportunity, watch the movie "Le Vieux Fusil" (The Old Gun) with Philippe Noiret, based on the events at Oradour sur Glane.
