Day 25 - Monday, 29th September, 2014
We were out of Limoges fairly early today as we had a couple of things to do.
Firstly, we went to Oradour-sur-Glane, the scene of a Nazi atrocity on 10th June, 1944, where 642 of its inhabitants including woman and children, were massacred by the German Waffen SS.
