  1. Oradour-sur-Glane, haute Viene, Limoges, France
    Village détruit par l’occupation nazi.

    My hint was the destroyed buildings and the european landscape. Nice one!

  2. En Francia, en las ruinas de Oradour-sur-Glane (1° 2’27.47″E, 45?55’42.45″N)

  3. Ruins of Oradour-sur-Glane, France, destroyed in 1944 during WWII by German Waffen-SS troups.

  4. This is the original site of Oradour-sur-Glane, France. The town was destroyed and all of it’s inhabitants killed on June 10, 1944 by the Nazis. The town has been rebuilt on a different site, but the original site is kept as it was left as a monument and memorial to this terrible event.

  5. This is Oradour-sur-Glane in France, the site of a WWII massacre by the SS of over 600 people. One of those places I’ve been (its very sad) which makes it easier to find.

  6. Oradour-sur-Glane France

    hello all, I’m back!


  7. Ruins of Oradour-sur-Glane, in France.

  8. Ghost town Oradour-sur-Glane, France.

  9. Hi I’ve just arrived from holidays on time:-)
    This is a spot I also gave out as a place to find in our own quiz series. So – for me – it is easy.
    It is the ghost village of Oradour-sur-Glane.

  10. It’s Oradour-Sur-Glane, France

  11. Oradour-sur-Glane, France

  12. Oradour-sur-Glane, village destroyed by the SS and never rebuilt. This was my first guess before the clue but I had no google earth or maps available and somehow convinced myself that I was wrong as I couldn’t relate it to ground level photos :p

  13. Oradour-sur-Glane, in west central France.
    Terribly sad history.

    No way would I have found this without the hint.

    (Looking for World Heritage sites got me nowhere – and didn’t particularly seem to fit the image either – but that left me with not much more to go on…)

  14. These are the WWII ruins in the town of Oradour-sur-Glane in France.
