Summary

Chapter 10 explores the challenges of representing dissonant historical narratives related to questionable practices of incarceration, particularly of civilians. Heritage sites and institutions have preserved and interpreted the histories of these many sites through encounters with former captives and collection of their stories, objects and artworks, onsite at the physical locations of former captivity. Revisiting the major case studies in Canada, Australia, Japan and Singapore, the chapter examines the construction of physical memorials, cemeteries and peace gardens as a reparative practice, with ensuing tensions for national memory-making, asking what lessons might be drawn regarding settler citizenship.
