S8 E10 – Robert Pike on Oradour-sur-Glane

History Rage

This week we’re talking to historian, researcher and author “Silent Village: Life and Death in Occupied France”, Robert Pike who comes to rage that THE SS DID NOT DESTROY THE WRONG ORADOUR.


We talk about the horrors and events of Oradour-sur-Glane and how the narrative of this village has been bent and embellished in an attempt to give explanation, reason and meaning behind the massacre.
