In the Haute-Vienne region of France lies the village of Oradour-sur-Glane. The land is scarred by the massacre of an entire village by the Waffen SS Division on 10th June 1944. On that day, 642 people lost their lives: 190 men, 247 women, 205 children.
Under the decree of President Charles de Gaulle, the ruins cannot be destroyed. As no one was charged for the crimes committed 70 years ago, investigations continue to seek justice.
This documentary explores what the remains mean to France and features interviews from Dr Iain Stewart from Queen Mary University, and Cécile Faure from the Centre de la Mémoire d’Oradour-sur-Glane.
