Thanks For Oradour Photos

By Stacey L. Bowen

Dear Sir:

I just finished carefully going through your tremendous pictures. I only discovered the Armchair General site today and thankfully stumbled across your greatly appreciated efforts.

Over 30 plus years ago I read the horrific story of Oradour and how the French had created the living museum in a Readers Digest magazine. From that moment on, I promised myself that someday I would walk those streets and learn all I could about the history. Due to becoming totally disabled, those dreams along with many others now only become reality through the internet.

I want to thank you for taking the time to share your many photos with the world and I look forward to enjoying more of them as well as your clear explanations. Again thank you very much, and I wish you the best of health and happiness.

Dear Stacey,

Thank you very much for your kind comments, I appreciate you taking the time out to provide your feedback.

Visiting Oradour was a humbling experience for me, and I am glad you enjoyed the piece and my photos. I’m pleased to be of service.

In case you are interested, the following link will take you to all of the pieces I have written for the Armchair General website, although only a couple of them are visits like Oradour.

In addition, the second link that follows will take you to the Armchair General Image Gallery where you will find a great many sets of photos, most of them from my various visits.
