Near the end of World War II, four days after Allied armies landed at Normandy, a unit of Waffen SS tro en route to the front surrounded the French village of Oradour-sur-Glane and, without warning, systematically massacred its citizens. In an effort to come to grips with this tragedy, Jean-Jacques Fouche explores the massacre from several points of view - religious or ethnic differences, the background and training of the Nazi soldiers, and suspicions that villagers sheltered Jewish and Spanish anti-fascist refugee Expertly translated by David Sices and James B. Atkinson, Massacre at Oradour, France, 1944 offers the most comprehensive and well-documented account of the massacre, its aftermath, and the ways in which its memory affects our understanding of and response to terror.
