Memorial to the Girard family at Charly-Oradour

    This memorial is located in Charly-Oradour, in Department 57, Moselle. As can be seen in this picture the letters of the inscriptions are quite hard to read, due to a combination of the light, the nature of the stone and the angle the photograph had to be taken from.

The names on the tablet are as follows: Girard, Constant 71. Marie (née Leid) 68. Charles 42. Clotilde (née Koppe) 37. Yvette 9. Jennine 7. For a full list of names of all those from the Charly area see: list of names and also the separate memorial at Oradour-sur-Glane.

This stone is one of a group of 12 arranged either side of the central memorial column to the dead of Charly-Oradour at the entrance to the village.
