The village has been left untouched to bear witness to the crimes. Ceremonies to mark the 75th anniversary of the worst massacre of civilians perpetrated by Nazi troops in France during World War II are being held in the uninhabited, memorial ruins of the village on Monday. Army minister Genevieve Darrieussecq attended a commemorative mass and left tributes at monuments to the people who died in June 1944, just days after the D-Day landings in Normandy, hundreds of kilometers to the north.

Relying on multiple eye witness accounts and thorough research in French, American and Résistance archives, the author describes in Part I, hour by hour, the massacre on June 10, 1944, by the Waffen-SS Division Das Reich, of 642 men, women and children in the village of Oradour-sur-Glane and the destruction of the village. Who ordered the massacre? Why? The book puts the tragedy in the context of the D-Day Landing and the period that precedes it. Part II is devoted to the conduct of the trial nearly nine years later. Of the 21 accused, only 7 were Germans. The others, all French/Alsatians, had mostly been forcibly inducted into the SS. None were officers. Were the Alsatians victims or murderers? And why were there no officers in the courtroom?

This book involves an atrocity at a small village in France during World War II. I admit that I ordered it because I knew the author and wanted to honor him by purchasing his book. I didn't know anything about the facts, and had never heard of the place at which the atrocity happened. And this did happen a long time ago, after all.

Well, I got the book, I started reading it, and I couldn't put the thing down! It is riveting, especially the vivid descriptions of what happened in the village, the witnesses, the survivors, the perpetrators. In addition, there are serious moral questions asked about the guilt or innocence of the French perpetrators who had been pressed into service. Finally, there is tremendously patient and thorough scholarship evidenced by the review and distillation of the record and an orderly presentation of the trial of certain individuals alleged to have been involved in the atrocity.

There is something valuable in this book for every person who would take the step in faith to purchase this compelling work.

I was familiar with this story. The book filled in some of the blank spots. I really enjoyed the account.
