What makes Oradour-sur-Glane remarkable is that the village was never rebuilt after June 1944, but left as it was. One sees ruined buildings, burned out cars, rusty sewing machines, abandoned tram tracks, etc. A new village of Oradour-sur-Glane was built after the war, northwest of the site of the massacre and ruined remnants of the original Oradour-sur-Glane have been left as a memorial.
Souviens-toi / Remember is a 9 x 12-1/4 inch, 24-page book in the english language, printed to remember the horrific events that took place on a summer afternoon 68 years ago. The rare book contains before and after photos of Oradour-sur-Glane, a map of the village, photos of the few survivors, etc.
Printed by Impremerie Lavauzelle of Limoges, this undated oversized example of Souviens-toi / Remember is in very good used condition.
The small, rual village of Oradour-sur-Glane was a peaceful hamlet until 10 June 1944, when its history changed forever. Up to that day World War II had not had much of an impact on the small village 12 miles from Limoges in central France.
On Saturday 10 June 1944 the 2nd SS Panzer Division "Das Reich" halted on their way to Normandy to stop the Allied invasion, killed a total of 642 men, women and children and destroyed the village. Many historians and authors have speculated and given their opinion about the reason for the atrocities and there is ample information available about them on the internet.
