There is a story behind this week’s post for Thursday Doors and it’s not a pleasant one. This was taken in Oradour-sur-Glane. It’s about twenty miles from here and in June 1944 over 600 of its residents were massacred by a detachment of SS troops, as a ‘reprisal’. The site is now a national monument and has deliberately been left exactly as it was. A grim reminder, indeed, but also a very powerful one.
