Today in 1944 a Wafen SS Panzer Division, ‘Das Reich,’ massacred 642 men, women and children in Oradour-sur-Glane, France. It Charles de Gaulle ordered that the village be left as a permanent memorial. 

Historical subtext: fuck the Nazis and especially the SS.

@nofaithius I have done on multiple occasions, images and articles, including one particularly harrowing account from a POW fleeing the city in the midst of the firestorm. I haven’t posted about Oradour, and besides, today is its anniversary.
