Oradour sur Glane - France- Martyr Village 4k

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor FreD ...///... created this haunting aerial video of Oradour-sur-Glane, a small French village in central France that was the scene of one of the worst World War II atrocities in Western Europe.  In June, 1944, troops of the Waffen-SS came through here to reinforce the German positions in Normandy following the Allied D-Day landing.  They massacred 642 residents of the town, mostly women and children.  While the village was rebuilt nearby, the original village was preserved in memorial.
