Below is a full list of the names of those killed in Oradour-sur-Glane who originated from Charly and nearby Montoy-Flanville. All 44 names are inscribed on the 12 slabs around the base of the modern memorial in the village of Charly. On the 12th August 1950, Charly which lies about 3 miles north-east of Metz in Department 57 (Moselle), was re-named as, Charly-Oradour. To see the memorial for a particular family, 'click' on the name is blue below.
For comparison, see the memorial at Oradour-sur-Glane, which also lists the 44 names and note that there are some minor discrepancies, such as in ages and that the memorial at Oradour-sur-Glane quotes "Montois" instead of Montoy-Flanville as a parish of origin for some of the victims. Where there has been a discrepancy in either spelling or ages, the information shown on the memorials at Charly-Oradour has been taken as being correct. It is a shame that there has been no obvious attempt to synchronise the memorials at Oradour-sur-Glane with the ones at Charly-Oradour.
