The tragedy of Oradour.

Today the 10th of June sees the anniversary of the massacre of Oradour Sur Glane, A French town in south west France. On this day 1944 the Nazis committed a vile atrocity where they destroyed the town and murdered all the men, women and children. For those who follow my blog I am deeply involved in the tragic account of Oradour. I have given presentations and also have written a stage play, ‘All My Pretty Ones.’ We had a wonderful rehearsed reading in March and now the next step after a re-write is to seek full production. I ask you today to spare a thought, a prayer for the cruel loss of so many innocent lives and join me with the constant battle against such evil.
