In the final chapter, the authors reflect on the whole process of researching and writing this very personal memoir. They discuss its impact upon them and reevaluate their relationships with the missing persons in their lives. They address key questions like how far their quest has succeeded in doing justice to the lives of their deceased family members and how the legacy of war has contributed to who they are.
