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. Here, they’re able to enjoy wading through knee-deep sand inside the abandoned buildings and gazing upon the remnants of the town’s former glory.

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.
