Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


It is the purpose of this project to shed light on the events that took place in Oradour sur Glane in June 1944, as well as to answer the question about the significance of ideological schooling of the SS troops. For this purpose we have done our research at a military archive in Freiburg, Germany as well as reading up on relevant academic works. The historians often disagree, so in order to get our own impression, the source material has been analyzed and held up against the varying opinions. The purpose was not to find the one true reason, but to gain knowledge about the actors and conditions that shaped the events Several factors have been identified as important, including ideological schooling, vengeance as well as a resurfacing of memories and experience with those who had previously served on the Eastern Front.
