Partition Voices: Untold British Stories

By Kavita Puri

Bloomsbury, £20, hardback, 320 pages

On 15 August 1947, British India was split in two, creating two new dominions: one majority Hindu, the other majority Muslim. The Partition, as it was known, had other effects: it led to the deaths of around a million people, and the displacement of millions more. The violence and refugee crisis left a lasting mark on both dominions - India and Pakistan - as well as the people who experienced them. This book by BBC journalist Kavita Puri, which accompanies the recent Radio series of the same name, tells the stories of those who moved to Britain and the pain and loss they experienced. It’s moving, thought-provoking stuff.
