14 million people were displaced and 1 million people died during the Partition of India. Neena Newberry shares the story of her family’s history, a time of insane violence because of a religious partition line; the separation of India and what is known today as Pakistan. That was just one of the many struggles her family has overcome before finding their way to freedom and peace. After her parents married and had children, Neena’s dad, who was highly educated, migrated (without his family) to England where he worked night shift at an ice cream factory. When the family was reunited, the suffering didn’t stop in England. Racial discrimination and ignorance affected their children in the form of bullying and physical violence. So, they picked up and moved to the US, where they had family connections and community. Such an inspirational story of courage and perseverance.
