The Champ de Foire

    This view of the Champ de Foire has been taken from near the well and is looking towards the Rue Emile Desourteaux (the Doctor's Car can be seen in the lower centre, to the right of the big tree). The Laudy Barn is out of sight, to the rear and left of view. This photograph shows where the population of Oradour were assembled by the SS when they first arrived in the village on the afternoon of 10th June 1944.
