Silent Cities: OPERATION AVALANCHE REMEMBERED
Welcome to Silent Cities, a YouTube series about our work at the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, the stories of those we commemorate and the wider context of the battles they were involved in. Explore history from a very personal perspective in this thought provoking series and uncover the scope of our work.
Our work in Kenya
CWGC has several advanced stage programmes in Kenya to commemorate soldiers, carriers, and porters from across the African continent who were not remembered because of unequal approaches to commemoration over one hundred years ago. The stories from this work are so potent they are best explained by this short film – as told by our Heritage Manager, Patrick Abungu who is a key part of our team in Nairobi, Kenya.
In this film Patrick explains his personal perspective and outlines the importance of finding closure through the research led, community-first approach CWGC is taking as our work continues. We will remember them.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission is a global leader in commemoration
