Dotted across homes in Britain are people who were witnesses to one of the most tumultuous events of the twentieth century. Yet their memory of India's partition has been shrouded in silence. V&A Trustee, BBC journalist and broadcaster Kavita Puri travelled from Dorset to Dundee recording testimonies of people who were once subjects of the British Raj and are now British citizens. Join her in conjunction with the publication of her critically acclaimed book Partition Voices, for a discussion of this very British story, one that breaks the silence and confronts the difficult truths at the heart of Britain’s shared history with the Indian subcontinent.
