The 1947 Partition Archive is a citizen-powered non-profit organization dedicated to documenting, preserving and sharing eye witness accounts from all ethnic, religious and economic communities affected by the Partition of British India in 1947. We provide a platform for our fellow citizens to collect, archive and display oral histories that document not only Partition, but pre-Partition life and culture as well as post-Partition migrations and life changes.
We are dedicated to bringing knowledge of Partition into widespread public consciousness through creative and scholarly expression. Our collected works are being made available in limited capacity via our online Story Map. The full works will soon be made available for educational purposes to academic researchers, students and the public. Stay tuned for more information or contact us to learn more.
