"Down this road, on a summer day in 1944, the soldiers came...nobody lives here now. They stayed only a few hours, when they had gone a community which had lived for a thousand years was dead. This is Oradour-sur-Glane, in France. The day the soldiers came the people were gathered together. The men were taken to garages and barns, the women and children were lead down this road, and they were driven into this church. Here, they heard the firing as their men were shot, then, they were killed too. A few weeks later, many of those who had done the killing were themselves dead, in battle. They never rebuilt Oredur, its ruins are a memorial. Its martyrdom stands for thousand upon thousand of other martyrdoms in Poland, in Russia, in Burma, China, in a World at War."
