Oradour-sur-Glane (Occitan: Orador de Glana) is a commune in the Haute-Vienne department in the Limousin region in west-central France.
The original village was destroyed on 10 June 1944, when 642 of its inhabitants, including women and children, were massacred by a German Waffen-SS company. A new village was built after the war on a nearby site and the original has been maintained as a memorial.

The building, the Chambre de Commerce et d’Industrie de Paris (CCIP) deposit, was ended between 1929 and 1931 and it is composed of two warehouses, at the time dedicated to the storage and supply of grains and flour shipped by boat through the Ourcq channel to the city of Paris. The building also served as customs office.
Unfortunately it’s difficult to find information about this place and we weren’t able to discover when the building was dismissed and what happened later until now. It appears it is (or has been) a squat, but we couldn’t find any other confirm about that.
