The White Line - Here, There, Then, Now Oral History Project Fonds
2017-2018This HLF heritage project explored the experiences of those living through the partition of India and Pakistan in 1947. Oral history interviews were carried out with people who eventually migrated to Huddersfield to record their memories of pre-Partition, the Partition era and what happened afterwards.
The project led to the creation of a film and educational resources to allow newer generations to connect and empathise with the past and across different communities.
