War throughout time has resulted in countless atrocities. Recent history has been witness to incredible calculated violence and horrendous crimes against humanity. Crimes such as planned and methodical extermination, rape and genocide have been committed in the world highlighting that man’s inhumanity to man is still very much in evidence. Is it appropriate that we mention the destruction of archives in the same context during times of war and occupation? It is. We must pay attention to and understand the importance of memory, the archive, and the record to a people, especially during a time of war and occupation. The destruction of archives and records is a destruction of the unseen, not of flesh and blood but that of the soul of a people.
