Weekly Photo Challenge: Resilient

The village of Oradour-sur-Glane is a national monument in France. In June 1944 a battalion of the German SS massacred over 600 men, women and children here. It has been left just as it was in the aftermath of that atrocity for over seventy years.

Walls have collapsed, wooden furniture has long rotted away, but metal objects are more resilient and still survive, despite being exposed to the elements for over half a century.
