Panorama of the Champ de Foire from the cemetery road

    This view of the Champ de Foire (fairground) in Oradour-sur-Glane shows the Laudy barn on the left, about one fifth of the way in from the edge of the picture and the three rabbit hutches from which the five men finally escaped are just to the right of centre. The church is out of sight at the end of the road on the left and the cemetery is further along the road behind the photographer (see Village Plan). The car of Doctor Desourteaux is not visible, but it lies on the road going half-right (after it curves out of sight). Just visible on the right of view is the well on the Champ de Foire.
