    The first pic is a plaque showing the names of the people who lived in the house with the two cars behind, Marie Avril the restaurant owner and Henri Lawrence and his two kids 10 and 7 years old. The other photos showing the bakers, his ovens and even his scales still in place.

    by pfsmalo Updated Jun 18, 2015

    These photos show how personal effects are left in place iside the memorial. The car in the first photo is the village doctors and although it has been moved out of the way of the street it is exactly how it was found. Who had used the old sewing machine here or ridden on that bike frame ?

    Difficult to not feel a chill when you walk in here and seeing where the women and children were herded where the altar is and into the alcoves on the side. This is the only building in the village that can be visited from the inside.

    ST. JUNIEN

    A 13km drive took us to the medieval town of St. Junien. The town is named after its Patron Saint [6th century religious hermit, named Julien]
    The hermit was said to cure the faithful with holy spring water.

    The 11th century Romanesque monastery of St-Junien was built around his tomb and is worth a visit for its sculptures and frescoes.
    In the town we saw many fountains with unusual sculpture's of a Dragonfly. I believe, the Dragon fly is related to water, so I guess it maybe to do with the holy spring water.
