Recovering the Fallen; Remembering the Missing by Christina Holstein
The 1916 Battle of Verdun ended with over 700,000 French and German casualties, many of whom disappeared without trace. After the war, the enormous task of dealing with the remains required new legislation, aroused violent argument and left many people without answers. While French families could raise private memorials, German families could not, and decisions concerning German remains were taken by French authorities. Today the authorities work together when human remains are recovered but many remain lost and the recent appearance of unofficial memorials poses a dilemma for the authorities.
