  2. 2. Body Parts of Women and Children with Unburned Clothing<br />
  3. 3. “Frozen in time”<br />“Oradour was conceived of and described as a pilgrimage site. Yet those who have spent time in the ruins over the years have noted a change in attitude that denotes a shift toward tourism (p. 113).”<br />
  4. 4. To think about…<br />If you were touring Oradour, would you have taken a similar picture of this? Why?<br />Do the amount of tourists visiting and taking pictures of the site desensitize the aura of Oradour as a living museum?<br />

  19. 19. From Martyred Village…<br />“The desire to perpetrate the memory of the recent past has led to the building of memorial-museums that combine an intense commemorative and moral message with the presentation of historical information … Such museums may have great value in making the viewer conscious of the extent to which history is an interpretation of the past and therefore always represents a certain point of view. (p. 211)<br />
  20. 20. “By the turn of the century, most of the survivors of Oradour will be gone. The history of the Second World War will increasingly become the territory of professional storytellers – historians, filmmakers, novelists and writers of historical potboilers. In Oradour as elsewhere, they will replace, as the primary interpreters of the recent past, the survivors who have been the historians of their own experience. (p. 213)”<br />Excerpt from Martyred Village<br />
