We are concerned citizens committed to preserving this chapter of our collective history. We come from diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, nationalities, and professions. It is our view that a strong foundation in history will pave the way for a more enlightened future for the South Asian subcontinent and hence the world. At the moment our team, which is nearly completely volunteer based, includes citizen oral historians, staff, interns, advisers, and experts who are passionate about preserving the peoples' history of Partition.
