This final chapter draws conclusions from the themes discussed throughout the book and considers the contemporary commemorative context surrounding the Second World War both in France and around the world. It identifies potential further studies within the field, including broadening the scope to include more recent films and films of other national cinemas. This concluding chapter also discusses the legacies of significant individuals who passed away between 2015 and 2020, including Jacques Chirac and Claude Lanzmann. It finally argues for the need of ongoing, critical reflections of the past as we look to a future where storytelling and ‘truth’-telling remain vital to fostering cohesive local, national and international societies.
