The 1947 Partition Archive’s homepage features a Story Map with a searchable index that geospatially displays oral histories and the migration routes of witnesses displaced by the 1947 Partition of British India. The Story Map provides a telling visual history of the migrations during Partition. A pop-up placard displays information about each individual Partition witness including basic biographical information and a curated abstract of their oral history interview.
