The 1947 Partition Archive

The 1947 Partition Archive gives voice to local elders who survived the violent Partition of South Asia in 1947, an event that is as significant as the Holocaust in Europe but has attracted little documentation.  So far, over 100 volunteers have helped preserve over 500 stories on digital video.  There is a great urgency for us to carry out the work as fast as possible since those who remember Partition are now in their 80’s, 90’s and beyond.
