These days Kolmanskop is a much-loved tourist destination. Despite still needing special permission to enter the area’s longstanding ‘forbidden zone’ – an old rule which dictated that thousands of square miles were off-limits to anyone except for a few mine workers – over 35,000 visitors a year are bussed to the site.

This small settlement in the Haute-Vienne area of mid-France was once a normal village until it became notorious as the site of an awful massacre during the Second World War. On June 10, 1944, a branch of the Waffen SS killed 642 people there, including women and children in supposed retaliation for the capture of a Nazi officer.

The rusted wreckage of the Mayor’s car stands in the empty streets, unmoved since that fateful day. In the memorial museum, the Centre de la mémoire d’Oradour, there are numerous objects recovered from the burned-out buildings: stopped watches, melted glasses and pushchairs still remain in the church ruins.
