About the walk

The Partition of the Indian sub-continent in 1947 resulted in the largest mass migration in human history, directly impacting between 12–18 million people. This walk takes you through the galleries of the Partition Museum and explores this aspect of Indian history in the context of oral histories and narratives of Partition survivors.
