About the ProjectThree generations have passed since the Partition of Bengal. What do you, as a member of the 3rd generation, think of when you hear stories of Partition from your parents and grandparents? The Goethe-Institutes in Kolkata and Dhaka present the five months project “My Parent’s World – Inherited Memories”.
It focuses on inherited memories of this third generation post partition, how it affects millions of people still today, shapes their minds and views of “the other Bengal” and what role the culture of memory plays in coming to terms with the passed on traumata.
