So when do you think we will? By the number of books, films, documentaries, tv dramas etc etc about the world wars its clear that as a nation we are still very interested in their history and with the preparations for the up coming 100th anniversary of the beginning of the first world war as well as the levels of turn out each Rememberance day there are still high levels of respect for the fallen of both wars. However, with WW1 passing from living memory and WW2 on the way out how long do you think modern rememberance, respect and interest will continue?* *is there a 4-5 generation limit (we dont pause to remember the dead from the crimean, boer, zulu or napoleonic wars)? will the world wars be remembered longer because of their sheer scale?are there examples of rememberace taking place long after that generations time has passed (for example do the colonists pause to remember the dead from the civil war?)? is the culture of rememberace day just a relatively modern concept which will die out?
