Mandeep Samra introduces the screening of Let’s Go Yorkshire’s documentary film: A New Life in Huddersfield, and conducts a Q&A with two of the local participants, Jamil Akhtar and Hermant Kaur Dutta.
The film tells personal stories about Partition and what it was like for people who arrived in Huddersfield in the 1950s onwards.
The White Line was a heritage project developed by Let’s Go Yorkshire exploring local people’s stories of Partition and how it dramatically shaped the lives of South Asian migrants who eventually settled in Huddersfield. Find out more about the project at: https://thewhitelineproject.wordpress.com/
