AU BORD DE LA DORDOGNE - 2


These scenes of the Dordogne flowing through the village of Mouleydier give no hint of the massacre which occurred on 21 June 1944.  In retribution for an attack on the occupying German forces by th French Resistance, the village was virtually completely destroyed killing an estimated 75 inhabitants.  Mouleydier was declared a village martyr after the war.
