With the support of hundreds of people, who donated their time, family objects, funds, and skills, the Partition Museum worked towards opening the entire Museum in time to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the Partition. The opening date for all fourteen galleries was decided as 17 August to mark the day that the Radcliffe award was announced. On 17 August 2017, Hon’ble Chief Minister of Punjab, Shri Amarinder Singh, dedicated the Partition Museum to the nation. It was marked as Partition Remembrance Day in tribute to the millions impacted.
This year the Partition Museum will focus its Remembrance Day events specifically on Sindh. Exploring the themes of migration, diasporic identities, and the loss of home, we will highlight the stories of those impacted directly by the partition and in this case, its effects on Sindh and the Sindhi community. Through the medium of exhibitions, performing arts, and engaging dialogue we will showcase both the tangible and intangible heritage of Sindh. By inviting the larger Sindhi community of the country, we will encourage their active participation, facilitate conversation, and invite interpretations of the works featured.
We are hoping that noted members of the Sindhi community from around India will join us in Amritsar for an event remembering their parents’ and grandparents’ experiences and memories of Sindh and their Sindhi heritage.
Join us at the Partition Museum, Town Hall, in Amritsar on 17th and 18th of August 2019.
