Souviens-Toi : Remember!
This is the notice which is displayed at all the entrances to the ruins of the martyr village of Oradour-sur-Glane (this particular example is at the entrance reached from the Centre de la Mémoire). "Souviens-Toi" takes the imperative and thus is a command to, "Remember!" Other examples of the notice are at both the old northern and southern, entrances and also by the way-in at the cemetery.
