Abstract:

"Sixty thousand Australians perished during the First World War, far from their homeland and their loved ones. So how did their families, on the other side of the world and without the bodies of their dead, attempt to come to terms with their loss?" "Bart Ziino examines the role of war graves and cemeteries in private grief and mourning. Australian reactions to death were defined by distance, a circumstance that impelled mourners towards communal responses to their loss. It drove them to create and sustain links with the graves that most knew they would never see." "The first major study to draw extensively on the archives of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, A Distant Grief adds a new dimension to our understanding of the ways in which individuals and communities responded to death and commemoration during and after one of the greatest traumas of the twentieth century."--Jacket.
