The men accused of the massacre of over 600 people in the village of Oradour-sur-Glane face the Bordeaux Military Tribunal in 1953. The villagers were annihilated by German forces on 10th June 1944, for reasons which remain unclear. The 21 men charged with the crime, including Prestel, Weber, Niess, Ochs, Lohner, Giedinger, Grienenberger, Graff, Daul, Elsaesser and Hoehlinger, were released shortly after the end of the trial.
