This series depicts events of one day in the life of a small peaceful village in France, on Saturday 10th of June 1944.

I chose this image to complete the series as it is a beautiful day with a stark reminder. Lest we forget.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Around 14:00 that Saturday, men from the Der Führer Regiment of the 2nd Waffen SS Panzer Division Das Reich, drove into Oradour-sur-Glane and killed everyone that they could find, a total of 642 men, women and children. The village was looted and burned.

The French government has frozen this village in time so people of the world never forget.
