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.
