This video, from France 24 TV in France, is called The 1944 massacre of Maillé waiting for answers.
It says about itself:
German investigators are expected in the French village of Maillé on Tuesday in the hope that they can help shed light on a WWII massacre in which German forces killed 124 villagers. There is no statute of limitation on war crime in Germany.

After the collapse of Hitler’s regime in 1945, there soon came a hush-hush on nazi crimes. Right wingers both in Germany and internationally saw at least some of the ex?? nazis as valuable allies against communism. In this way, ex?? nazi generals could be posthumously praised if dead, or become NATO generals if alive. Ex?? nazi businessmen could become business partners of US and other Western businesses once again. An ex prominent nazi party member could become Federal Chancellor of West Germany. An ex occupier of Czechoslovakia as a member of Himmler’s SS could become boss of the West German bosses’ organization.
Now, at last, when most survivors are already dead, there is media attention for the 1944 massacre of Maillé. How long will it take for all present crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Somalia to get big media publicity? 64 years?
