Exhibition: Of Love And War

From ABC News:
The excitement of wartime romance, tales of enduring love and the pain of separation are captured in a new exhibition at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.

Of Love And War tells of passionate affairs and whirlwind weddings, of lovers separated by war and the loneliness and trauma that tore some apart.

But it is not all about lost love.

There are also stories of survival, of joyful reunions and new beginnings during peace time.

Curator Rebecca Britt says it captures the highs and lows of romance.

Of Love and War will be on show at the Australian War Memorial until May 5, 2010.
