Charles Wheeler presents five personal interpretations of what the end of the Second World War meant to people in Britain and across the world. In Missing - the transition from war to peace after the second world war and things that were gone forever. What has gone for ever? Absences, bereavement.. but also new opportunities. Physical gaps: bomb damage - streets, townscapes altered forever, villages abandoned. There is though a better view of St Pauls. Bereavement: displaced, lost / killed children (eg. in the blitz), parents, war orphans, MIAs and trauma, casualties of war whose loss is very personal. Loss of childhood and those who have 'lost' whole countries.
