In the Haute-Vienne region of France lies the village of Oradour-sur-Glane. The land is scarred by the massacre of an entire village by the Waffen SS Division. On 10th June 1944, 642 people lost their lives: 190 men, 247 women, 205 children.
Under the decree of President Charles de Gaulle, the ruins cannot be destroyed. As no one was charged for the crimes committed 70 years ago, investigations continue to seek justice.
I produced this multimedia project for my final year in which I majored in documentary. The project investigates the what, where, why and whens of the tragedy of Oradour-sur-Glane.
Other aspects of the project include producing a behind the scenes video, an interactive map, a feature, a podcast and a blog of the journey. I also familiarised myself with basic HTML in order to differentiate between the projects webpages and the host webpages. To view the whole project click here.
