About this product
- DescriptionThe city of Amritsar stands on the volatile border between India and Pakistan. It has been a focus for political and religious conflict since the partition of 1947. Amritsar brings together 25 first-hand accounts of life in a city at the epicentre of one of the largest and bloodiest forced migrations in history. The interviews explore experiences from the time of partition: from the suddenness of uprooting and the belief that the migration was only to be temporary to the enduring sense that the violence was politically and t culturally or religiously motivated. Issues raised include: the abduction and rehabilitation of women and children; the differing experiences of elite and subaltern classes; the memories of refugee convoys and camps; the hazards of border crossing; and the stalgia for pre-Partition bonds between Muslims, Sikhs, and Hindus.
