Lorraine refugees school

    This shows the Lorraine refugees school in Oradour-sur-Glane, located on the road to Peyrilhac. The school was where the young Roger Godfrin ran to escape the killings, making him the youngest surviour of that day. The church is to the rear of view and the Masset Farm house, which was the SS command post for the day is out of sight round the bend in the road to the right.
