The notice exhorting visitors to "Silence" when in the ruins, is on the road to St. Junien and is seen by all visitors entering through the Centre de la Mémoire. The notice also appears at the old southern and northern entrances to the ruins of Oradour-sur-Glane. Sadly it is not always followed and some people, lost in their own affairs and distanced by time from the 10th June 1944, do their own thing, regardless of the ghosts of the past, or the feelings of the present (by for example, yapping loudly on their mobile phones).
