The Oral History Project
The Oral History Project (OHP) at The Citizens Archive of Pakistan (CAP) records recollections of the early days of Pakistan to provide an alternative perspective to official narratives found in historical literature. The stories emerging from the project, the secrets captured in old photographs, and the personal experiences of our nation’s people provide inspiration for our exhibitions and events. The project also aims to archive and preserve various records such as letters, newspapers, advertisements, refugee cards, official correspondences, and passports.
