(Click on the photo to enlarge) Note the baby pram on the floor of the church where women and children were burned alive, but strangely their clothing didn’t burn.
Read my previous post about a former German soldier, named Werner C, whom the present day Germans are trying to put on trial as a war criminal: https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2014/01/30/todays-germany-no-country-for-old-men/
This is the headline of a news article in the Mail Online today, which you can read in full here:
On June 10, in 1944, SS Panzer Division member entered the village to avenge a German soldier kidnapped by the French Resistance
“avenge” means to get even for something. It is not a legal term. A reprisal was legal, under the Geneva Convention in 1944. The laws have since changed and a reprisal is no longer legal. The Germans are now changing the laws so that actions that were legal during World War II are now illegal under the ex-post-facto laws of the Allies.
This quote is from the Mail Online article:
An 88-year-old former member of an SS armored division has been charged with murder and accessory to murder for allegedly taking part in the massacre of 642 French villagers by Nazi soldiers during World War Two.
The man, named only as Werner C, from Cologne, has been charged with 25 counts of murder and hundreds of counts of accessory to murder in connection with the slaughter in Oradour-sur-Glane.
The investigation into the massacre where almost the entire population of the village, including more than 400 women and children, was gunned down or burned alive on June 10, 1944, was re-opened by German prosecutors last year.
I previously blogged about Oradour-sur-Glane at https://furtherglory.wordpress.com/2012/06/12/what-does-the-evidence-show-about-the-real-story-of-oradour-sur-glane/
The Germans are at it again: another old German soldier will be hauled into a German court, on a stretcher, to be put on trial in connection with the legal reprisal carried out by German soldiers at Oradour-sur-glane in June 1944, in an effort to stop the murder of German soldiers by illegal combatants in the French Resistance.
The French surrendered after 5 weeks of fighting in World War II, but they never stopped fighting. They continued to fight as illegal combatants, ambushing and killing German soldiers by burning them alive.

I have studied the reprisal at Oradour-sur-Glane and I have written extensively about it on my website at http://www.scrapbookpages.com/Oradour-sur-Glane/index.html
