Bouchole barn

    This is the most isolated of the killing sites in Oradour, standing as it does quite close to the river Glane and near the village watermill. As can be seen it is in a ruined state with little of the original structure left standing. The inscription on the plaque reads, "Here at this place of torment a group of men were massacred and burnt by Nazis. Collect your thoughts" The church is to the rear of the photographer. See village plan for location details.
