I mentioned 1947 Partition Archive in class a few weeks ago and wanted to share it. Their work is simple, yet profound: collecting stories from people who experienced Partition and making sure that the experiential history of this pivotal moment isn’t lost.

What’s so cool is that you can get trained to do interviews as a “citizen historian”; then, there are opportunities for internships and fellowships, both in California and South Asia.

You can also use their interactive oral history map to learn more about Partition.
