Cheers to you!

Thank you so much Tony,

These travels took me all over France to find each and every battlefield, right up to the only concentration camp in France Strufhof- Natweiller,...well over 30, 000 were worked to death, hundreds were executed by hanging and firing squads for belonging to the French Resistance.

Four SOE agents were murdered there(all injected with a lethal dose of Phenol- a disinfectant) (Sonia Olensesky, Andree Borrell, Vera Leigh, Diane Rowden, and the last young girl (no ones know who it was) was put into the over still alive by Peter Straub..the crematorium guard....I have been their three times and every time I see the dissection table, the oven...I have to leave, sit outside and shed many tears...It is a terrible place. In the gas chamber down the road from the camp they gassed 150 Russian men & women, then sent the bodies to the Nazi Doctor in Strasbourg to measure the anatomy and bones....some were left at the camp and under Himmler's orders he commanded the Commandant - Joseph Stramer to burn everything, (he escaped)....but they were found by the American Army in fridges packed tightly and eventually buried..It was an horrendous massacre...as just across the road from the gas chamber was a hotel for the S.S. and as these 150 were being gassed...they were getting pissed, eating and having fun....!!!
