Speech of the French Prime Minister Manuel Valls

    The French Prime Minister Manuel Valls making his speech to remember the massacre at Oradour 70 years ago and expressing the hope that such events will not happen again. The man standing to his right with the French Tricolour sash is Raymond Frugier the present day mayor of Oradour-sur-Glane. The gazebo, under which they are both standing was erected for the day and taken down within two hours of this picture being taken. By the next day, nothing remained of the preparations for the 10th, it had all gone.
