Vandals desecrated a sacred memorial to the victims of the deadliest Earth War II massacre in Nazi-occupied France.
On June 10, 1944, an SS armored division herded villagers into barns and a church, and set them ablaze, killing 642 persons. Only 6 survived.
The vandals painted the memorial with graffiti calling the killings a lie, in accordance to reviews.
French President Emmanuel Macron vowed Saturday that “all will be done” to arrest these accountable.
“Almost everything will be accomplished to ensure that the authors of this are introduced to justice,” Macron reported in a assertion, Agence France-Presse reported. He added that he condemned in the most vehement phrases this “unspeakable” act.
“Shame on those people who did this,” Justice Minister Eric Dupond-Moretti tweeted. “All will be completed to uncover and judge people who fully commited these sacrilegious functions.”
Far-ideal chief Marine Le Pen tweeted, “It’s time for after and for all … to quit the recurrence of these functions that damage us all.”
Even though a new village has been built, the ruins of the previous town have been cared for as a reminder of Nazi horrors.
The massacre occurred 4 days after the Allied D-Working day landings in Normandy. The killings had been considered to have been requested in retaliation for the kidnapping of a German soldier by the French Resistance.
