Well containing bodies

    This is the well, located just off the road to St. Junien that was found to contain some bodies of villagers who had been killed elsewhere than one of the six main locations. It is worth remembering that bodies were found in several other places than the main sites; these seem to have been people who were discovered (and killed) after the main round-up of the population. The road to St. Junien can just be seen on the extreme left of view.
