German police have raided the homes of six elderly suspects in connection with the bloodiest massacre by the Nazis in France during the Second World War, prosecutors said Monday. But detectives failed to find any war diaries, photos or old documents as they had hoped, prosecutor Andreas Brendel said. All six men were either too infirm to talk or denied they took part in the Oradour massacre.
France has preserved the village of Oradour-sur-Glane in ruins as a memorial to the slaughter there of 642 villagers, mainly women and children, in 1944 by the Nazi Party’s military force, the Waffen SS.
