The Centre de la Mémoire

    This is the modern visitor centre for the ruins of Oradour-sur-Glane; it opened in April 1999 and replaced the two small kiosks at the southern and northern ends of the Rue Emile Desourteaux which had been the previous ways in to the village. The present day Centre is the only official entrance to the ruins.
