    The White Line - Here, There, Then, Now Oral History Project Fonds

    This 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.

    Disclaimer: These interviews cover the experiences of individuals in the past, including exposure to rascist attitudes and language, which is sometimes quoted by the participants. The University of Huddersfield is presenting this aspect of UK history in order to enable hidden narratives to be uncovered and to strengthen the coverage of under-represented or hidden narratives or unheard/disregarded voices.
