About the project

This project is the result of a collaboration between Hindustan Times (HT), The 1947 Partition Archive, an independent non-profit group, that has been “crowdsourcing” memories of the partition since 2010, and Dawn.com, an English national daily from Pakistan. It includes stories and commentary sourced by The 1947 Partition Archive, and exclusive reporting by Hindustan Times.

This microsite was designed and built by HT, but is also hosted by Dawn.com as a part of our collaboration.
