My Parents’ World – Inherited Memories
As a cross-border project, My Parents’ World – Inherited Memories is the first internet platform between Bangladesh and West Bengal/India to delve deep into the Partition of Bengal in 1947. Research on the third generation after Partition has been virtually non-existent. The interviews with members of this generation draw attention to the future and examine how memory, which is not personally experienced and is therefore not ‘objectifiable’, influences the picture of the post-Partition era.
