Memorial to the Mathieu family at Charly-Oradour
This memorial is located in Charly-Oradour, in Department 57, Moselle. As can be seen in this picture the letters of the inscriptions are quite hard to read, due to a combination of the light, the nature of the stone and the angle the photograph had to be taken from.
The names on the tablet are as follows: Mathieu, Leon 48. Marguerite 45. For a full list of names of all those from the Charly area see: list of names and also the separate memorial at Oradour-sur-Glane.
This stone is one of a group of 12 arranged either side of the central memorial column to the dead of Charly-Oradour at the entrance to the village.
