Hear stories based on ordinary people’s experience of national partition during the 20th century.
The stories come from the Indian sub-continent, partitioned among scenes of savage communal violence in which millions died at the end of British rule in 1947, Bosnia, which experienced a brutal 1990s civil war following the collapse of Communism, and Germany, which endured a different kind of national calamity while divided between a free West and a Communist East from 1945 to 1990.
Stories include: Where Did She Belong by Suraiya Qasim, Peshawar Express by Krishan Chander, At the Sarajevo Market by Igor Stiks and the challenging Speculations about Jakob (1959) by the acclaimed German writer Uwe Johnson (1934-84).
