Beaulieu garage in Oradour-sur-Glane
The photo above shows the corner of the
Beaulieu building which has a sign telling visitors that this
was one of the locations where the village men were murdered.
The rusty old car on the fairgrounds is behind the camera in
this view. On the far left in this photo, you can see tourists
entering Rue de Desourteaux from the entrance road which intersects
Rue de Desourteaux, the main street.
The photo below shows a view of the barn
from the other side. The old car on the Fairgrounds is in the
background on the right.
Notice the tall weeds in the center of
the photo above. Mostly, the village is maintained so that only
attractive plants are found among the ruins. The grass is cut
and the trees are trimmed. The ruins do not have an abandoned,
overgrown look, as you might expect. The village is maintained
so that it looks the way it was found the day after the massacre.
The photo below, taken early on a foggy
morning, shows the Beaulieu garage on the left and the entrance
to the Fairgrouds on the right.
