Petit Futé's opinion on REMEMBRANCE CENTRE - MARTYR VILLAGE OF ORADOUR-SUR-GLANE

Vintage plate 2020

The Memory Center contributes to the indispensable duty of Memory by providing the information necessary for understanding the drama. His journey of memory led the visitor from 1933 to 1953 to the expansion of Nazism in Europe at the trial of Bordeaux. Five exhibition spaces make it possible to better understand the historical reality and the exemplary nature of Oradour: the rise of Nazism, the French defeat, collaboration and resistance, the politics of terror, the days of 8 and 9 June 1944, the account of the tragedy of June 10, national recognition, the trials and amnesty, the reconstruction of Oradour, a reflection on the tragedy. To see also outside the Center, the statue made by the sculptor Fenosa, dedicated to the martyrs of Oradour-sur-Glane. An intense moment in emotions, unavoidable for all.

The ruins of the martyr village covering an area of 15 hectares, classified as a historic monument on May 10, 1946, were kept in the state where they were in the aftermath of the massacre. Placards invite the present to the collection on roads and roads where the impact of bullets on the walls and on the cars and rails left on the ground is still found. The conservation of this village after the massacre testifies to the future generations of this barbarous barbarity. Oradour is a symbol of a fatal France by the German occupation. The new Oradour, rebuilt by the state, is the typical example of post-war urbanism with its streets at right angles. The new church, inaugurated in 1953, has stained glass windows designed by Pierre Parot and made by Francis and Pierre Chigot.

Dur dur mais à faire
Je conseille la visite du musée avant d'aller dans le village mêm.
Les documents sont là pour aider à comprendre la tragédie.
Le parcours retrace bien les dernières heures de ces malheureux...

L'accès au village est resté libre mais on peut choisir de commencer la visite par le centre de la mémoire qui permet de se remettre dans le contexte historique jour par jour puis heure par heure avant la tragédie afin de mieux l'appréhender. Un film au milieu du parcours explique l'arrivée de la division Das Reich dans le village. Le parcours est très bien expliqué et bien documenté.

Préambule à la visite du village martyr, ce centre et ses musées racontent l'histoire, le déroulement des faits, heure par heure. Cela ne permettra pas de comprendre l'horreur, mais de mieux l'imaginer.

Bonjour à tous, Le Centre est édifié de telle sorte que l'on avance progressivement vers le village laissé tel quel. Tout au long du parcours, affiches, témoignages, cheminement de la guerre, ne permettent pas d'admettre ce qui a pu amener ces troupes à commettre de tels massacres certes, mais on cerne cette détresse destructrice. Les peuples doivent absolument garder en mémoire le danger qui les guette, la guerre rend le soldat fou

Pour éviter la frontalité brutale du site où l'on rentrait de plein pied sans préalable dans les ruines, le site s'est enrichi, au début du millénaire, d'un centre d'interprétation didactique assez bien fait. Le contexte du massacre par les SS de la division Das Reich y est expliqué et les cheminements criminels du fascisme hitlérien bien exposés. Utile pour les jeunes visiteurs peu éclairés sur l'histoire du XXe siècle.
