Germans Charge Former SS Member for Taking Part in French Village Massacre

FSWC Reports:

From The Globe and Mail:

German prosecutors have charged an 88-year-old former member of Adolf Hitler’s elite Waffen SS with taking part in a World War Two massacre of hundreds of French villagers, nearly 70 years after one of the most infamous Nazi atrocities.

In the methodical June, 1944, slaughter, SS soldiers took the small village of Oradour-sur-Glane in central France by surprise and killed nearly all its inhabitants within a few hours. They killed 642 men, women and children.
