Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

Oradour-sur-Glane is a village not far from here. In 1944 it was the scene of a Nazi atrocity, which can be read about here.

A new village was built nearby after the war, but the original is now preserved as a permanent museum and memorial to the 642 named victims.
