The Bouchoule Barn

    The Bouchoule Barn was one the killing sites for the men, it was perhaps the nearest site to the church and the most isolated of all six of the mens sites. It is close to the river Glane (which is hidden to the right rear amongst the trees). No one escaped alive from here. The inscription on the plaque reads, "Here at this place of torment a group of men were massacred and burnt by Nazis. Collect your thoughts".
