On June 10th, 1944, four days after the Normandy Landings, 642 people who lived in the village of Oradour-sur-Glane, among which 207 children, were slaughtered by the SS division Das Reich, while the village was pillaged and burned down. Kept as is, the site of the martyred village is today a place dedicated to memory and contemplation that illustrates the horror of barbarism.
The Memorial Centre situated nearby offers a permanent exhibition, ranging from the advent of Nazism to the story of the massacre of June 10th, 1944, as well as a reflection on peace and human rights.

Sainte- Sévère- sur- Indre
The village of Sainte-Sévère-sur-Indre, dominated by the ruins of its keep, is famous for having served as the set for the famous Jacques Tati movie Jour de Fête in 1947. The market square, which was used as a backdrop in the film, is very pretty with its 17th-century covered market, 15th-century fortified door and 16th-century wayside cross.
Jacques Tati fans must make a point of visiting the Maison de Jour de Fête, an entertaining museum space dedicated to the illustrious actor/director's work.
A market takes place under and around the covered market every Wednesday morning.
