Do you remember the empty silent chateau I blogged about a week or so ago? If not here is the link
I discovered more of it`s history today.
In the second world war the German soldiers that occupied Normandie took possession of the chateau forcing the family that lived there to move out. After the D Day landings the soldiers fled but left a turret booby trapped with explosives. The young son of the family entered the house the booby trap went off and he was killed.
The family left and never returned.
Do you think that houses hold their memories and will this place be tinged with sadness forever?
