The commemorative plaque for the new Centre de la Mémoire

    This plaque is set in the grass on what is in effect the roof of the Centre de la Mémoire at Oradour-sur-Glane. The inscription states that the first stone of the new Centre was laid on the 5th of April 1997 by Jean-Claude Peyronnet in the presence of the other persons named below. The Centre eventually opened two years later in April 1999.
