Indian Refugees Flee Violence Following the Division of India and Pakistan Ca. 1947Unknown - 1947
When Japan defeated Russia in the Russo-Japanese War in 1905, it became clear that Europe was not invincible. The Indian nationalist movement led by Mohandas Gandhi, combined with fatigue from World War II, eventually convinced Britain to grant independence to the Indian Empire, partitioning it into India and Pakistan in 1947. Despite the boon of self-governance, the partition displaced millions of people and millions more were killed in the resulting territorial disputes.
