Archiving Loss synopsis
By drawing many stories from a difficult archive of events and shifting history, the loss of archiving:holdingplaces for difficultmemories asks how we can walk and walk in the path of memory, loss and silence in the archive. The difficult events discussed in this book include the responses of States to refugees, the events of genocide, as well as other pockets of less documented trauma, violence and loss.

In his question of what is missing and what is in the archive of difficult events, this book argues that it is necessary to look closely for other ways of remembering loss and archivingmemory..
