Oradour sur Glan, is a French village, located 23 km north-west of Limoges.  Oradour, like neighbouring Tulle, like Lidice in Czechoslovakia and Marzabotto in Italy, became a symbol of propaganda for the three world empires, Soviet, British and American, that in 1945 overwhelmed the German armed forces.

All these townships are united by one thing, that without confirming the facts, without any scientific research, their tragic history was presented in an absolutely false light. The most lied about tragedy was that of Oradour.

At the hour of 0600 on day six and month six (666), June 6, 1944, the Normandy landings took place. Two days later, on June 8, the 2nd SS-division Reich received an order to redeploy in order to clear the road from partisans and ensure the advance of German troops. The following day, there was heavy fighting in Tulle against the partisans.

Church-in-Oradour

On the evening of June 9, Helmut Kempfe, commander of the 3rd motorised infantry regiment Der Führer, as part of the tank division Das Reich, was captured by partisans. The next morning, two Frenchmen informed the Germans that a high-ranking officer was in captivity in Oradour occupied by Maquisards and Communist partisans. The partisans announced that their captive was to be executed and then burned.

The German side tried to resolve this issue by diplomatic means. Their offer was to release 30 captured partisans, pay a bounty of 40,000 francs in exchange for their captured commander and the other prisoners held by the partisans.

Headline Oradour Advert

Sturmbannfuhrer Adolph Dickmann received an order with his 1st battalion to move in the direction of Oradour and to bring captive Maquisards and offer an exchange. This exchange of partisans was not accepted.

The Germans encountered resistance in Oradour and found the bodies of several executed German soldiers. In one burnt out ambulance six corpses were found, the driver and the passenger were tied to the steering column. This was revealed after the war by a French officer. A German ambulance driver was also killed, which, as is known, was unarmed and was protected by the International Red Cross.

Fighting ensued and on the capture of Oradour by German troops, the men were separated from the women and children who were gathered in the church. The men were confined to the barns so that they could be easily guarded by several soldiers.

At this point, troops of the Waffen SS began searching houses and found a great many weapons. At they did so, there was a terrifying explosion in the centre of the village. Women and children in the church were in fact victims of hidden ammunition exploded there.

These arms caches had been secreted by members of the resistance movement.  The reason this was never investigated is that such findings would have proved conclusively that the explosion was caused by munitions unavailable to the German troops. In fact, the German troops set about the task of rescuing women and children from the burning church.

It is known that 642 inhabitants were killed by explosions and in the ensuing firefight. The houses in which there were weapons and explosives caches were later destroyed by SS units. These actions are not illegal and were carried out under the command of Adolf Dickmann.

In the absence of radio communications, Dickmann was forced to act and make independent decisions. An investigation was afterwards initiated. The military court of the Das Reich Division interrogated Major Adolf Dickmann and other soldiers.

Due to the fact that the Normandy landings were taking place, the inquiry was temporarily suspended. Major Dickmann was one of the first to be thrown into defensive battles.

According to French eyewitnesses, the Germans did not set fire to to the church, nor did they shoot women and children trying to escape. On the contrary, they risked their lives to save stricken women and children from the burning church.

In December 1963, a Lieutenant Colonel Mathess of the Bundeswehr in military uniform visited Oradour. Many residents who survived the tragedy of June 9 embraced him and thanked him for their salvation. It was remembered by them with gratitude that it was the German military who had rescued them. Such is on record.

The killing of Sturmbannfuhrer Kempfe in Oradour by the partisans was particularly cruel as the evidence showed.  The French government, although it was friendly to the post-war German government, opposed all requests to exhume the body of Kempfe, as is required by the Hague Treaty.  To this day, the church has not been restored and traces of those military events in it have been preserved. However, France does not intend to issue investigative acts in the Oradour case.

Here’s freedom to him who would speak; here’s freedom to him who would write; for there’s none ever feared that the truth should be heard; save he who the truth would indict.’ ~ ROBERT BURNS. (1759 ~ 1796).

Those who are trying to reach the truth, like the Frenchman Vincent Reynouard, author of The Truth About Oradour, suffered and was expelled from his career as a teacher.

World War II, which was declared by the French on September 3, 1939, and was continued by partisans. The French declaration was illegal, it broke the terms of the non-aggression pact and was in defiance of the Geneva Convention. Similarly, contrary to the house rules, England’s declaration of war on Germany was never put to a parliamentary vote.

The military propaganda of yesterday and today is so ingrained; it has become an integral part of history. To this day there is a whole series of episodes in which local settlements with their populations were destroyed by member nations of the Allies, as in Algeria, Indochina, Vietnam (Mai Lai) and hundreds like the unfortunate village and its inhabitants, Cambodia, Rhodesia, Afghanistan, Lebanon.

Not a single atrocity was brought to the attention of an international tribunal that would have investigated these killings, as was done in Nuremberg. CREDIT: Otto Weidinger.

NOTE: In context, it might also be remembered that without any provocation the post-war Czech government razed over 500 German villages.  ‘These hundreds of villages, clearly identified on pre-1939 maps, they no longer exist. ‘The official Czech register of names of villages reveals that nearly 500 (German) villages no longer appear on the register because they have literally disappeared from the landscape.’ – Verfall und Zerstoerung der Sudetendeutschen, Munich, 1965.

    Mike The incident at Oradour was mentioned in the ZDF series on the Waffen SS produced by Guido Knopp. However, no mention at all was made that the town was in control of the communist partisans or that the partisans murdered a Waffen SS officer beforehand or that they hid explosives in the church. All that is said on the program is that members of the Das Reich Division opened fire on men in the village without provocation and burned people alive in the church. Also, partisans were not covered under the Geneva convention and the Germans were totally correct in executing them if they caught them. .

    Vincent Reynouard’s video forensically debunking the lies is excellent and is a must watch. The Oradour tragedy was always a regular on BBC’s Remembrance Day broadcast with the usual package of dishonesty and falsehoods presented as historical fact. I don’t know if the BBC still has the temerity to continue with its lying portrayal as I don’t watch it anymore. Vincent Reynouard did give a speech at Professor Robert Faurisson’s last speaking engagement before the great man’s death. The meeting was disrupted by the usual garbage. Video attached if not previously seen.

    If I am not mistaken, Vincent Reynouard had been sentenced to a term in prison in France; the files on Oradour remain closed for the time being.
    At the time the incidence at Oradour occurred, town after town in Germany was terrorized with high explosives and incendiary bombs from the air by people who had no personal stake in it. The SS in Oradour was acting in a disciplined way mindful of being under attack by partisans who were acting without regard of the civilians. According to today’s morality, people who run into a partisan ambush and try to defend themselves as well help the hapless civilians living there are “war criminals”; the partisans are ‘heroes”, however, whether in Oradour, Tulle, Lidice or Marzobotto.
    With that kind of morality there is indeed no future, but a common interest in rejecting dishonor and falsehood will hopefully help in reuniting people in all countries who will have nothing to do with it and rather band together to build a common future free from such depravity.
    For me, it is important that such people have lived and do live in Britain, Germany, America, France, Italy, even in Greece, Holland and Belgium.

  • In the British series, The World at War, which was put together in the late 1960s, and narrated by Laurence Olivier, this village, I seem to recall, was cited as an example of “Nazi” cruelty and crimes.

    What was done to the Germans was the real holocaust.
