The Partition of India in 1947 divided the country into India and West and East Pakistan at the cost of over a million lives and is the biggest mass migration of people in modern history. Mahatma Gandhi called the traumatic experience of Partition ‘the vivisection of India’ and in The Great Partition Oxford Professor Yasmin Khan shows how this operation was performed. Kavita Puri’s award-winning Radio 4 series and book Partition Voices shares the stories of people in Britain who experienced Partition first-hand. They join Jo Durrant to discuss the events of 1947 and Partition’s enduring legacy, as its impact reverberates to this day for the many families who were divided by the lines that were drawn.
