AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Angelo Loukakis's 'The Missing Archive' addresses a suitcase of correspondence comprised mostly of letters between his parents from the years before their marriage. The letters present moving, tangible, and at times mysterious connections between Greece and Australia during WWII, including the occupation of Crete, and the years just following. The connections between these particular lives, bodies and memories, constitute a profound and insistent alternative to the monolingual 'colonial and war missives' that comprise the vast bulk of public library repositories of letters.'
