Panorama of the church and the Lorraine refugees school from the road to Peyrilhac

    This photograph taken looking into Oradour from the road to Peyrilhac, shows the church, the Rue Emile Desourteaux and the Lorraine refugee school on the right with the plaque on the wall. It was from the school that the 7 year old Roger Godfrin escaped by running out of the back and across the fields. The road on the left continues to the Masset farm house, which was the SS command post for much of the 10th June. It is not possible to walk on down the road to Peyrilhac past the wooden fence shown in this view.
