Bangla Stories website


Launch of Bangla StoriesThe Bangla Stories website has been launched by Baroness Uddin at the House of Lords, with the help of students from Mulberry School in Tower Hamlets. 

The website is a new learning resource for young people (KS3) about migration, integration and life histories. It emerged from a three-year London School of Economics/University of Cambridge project interviewing people who migrated from the state of Bengal after Independence in 1947.

Eight individuals tell their stories and help to explain how and why very ordinary people move from country to country. They relate some very extraordinary narratives that illustrate experiences of migration among Bengali Muslim communities in India, Bangladesh and the United Kingdom.

The website includes a teaching resource pack that has been designed for teachers, youth workers and any other professionals interested in young people growing up in Britain.
