« Back to Oxford England




During the summer of 2008, I spent about 10 days in Oxford and this time I was accompanied by my two oldest children both of whom had been born in Oxford. Here is my son, who perhaps embodies his generation, confronting and acknowledging the work of previous generations. As we explored various colleges, I was again struck by the "lists" that can be found in each college - and they are very long lists - registering the many students and graduates lost in the great wars.
