Sandip Roy: Partition Museum

Archive_ScreenShot.png
Map of India before and after Partition

There's a penthouse suite in downtown Berkeley, California that  would make you think you are in a tech incubator hub. White boards on the wall with scribbles on them. Panoramic views of the Berkeley hills.  Two syllable names like Chirp and Kizoom – more catchy than meaningful.

And then there is the 1947 Archive.

The Partition of India uprooted 10 -15 million people , the largest mass displacement of the 20th century.  250,000 – two million died. Yet no museum commemorates it. Until this archive from downtown Berkeley.
