The Bakery where cremated remains were found
This is the Bakery in Oradour where cremated bodies were found, one of which was a baby's skeleton discovered in one of the ovens visible at the rear of the premises. It is located on the Rue Emile Desourteaux more or less opposite the Desourteaux garage. The inscription on the plaque reads, "Here were found two cremated bodies". The plaque on the right quotes, "Boulangerie (Baker) L. Bouchoule". See the view up the Rue Emile Desourteaux for more location detail and also the village plan.
