The Monument archiveA young soldier obeys his superiors only to find that as the conclusion of war, he is guilty of war crimes "everyone was doing". He is "rescued" by a woman from the enemy side who suspects that he knows the whereabouts of her missing daughter. Can she forgive him? Can he be sorry? Wagners work raises searing questions about the ongoing cycle of retribution and the nature of forgiveness. But it also digs deep into heart of what drives ordinary people to commit mass rape and murder. The Monument is a haunting examination of the use of rape as a military tool in the ethnic conflicts of our lifetime. "They show us porno films and tell us doing it to women is good for morale and they bring women in and then after the war is over they tell us what we did is a crime. After its over you find out there were rules. Like no raping women."

Author Colleen Wagner.
