The events at Jallianwala Bagh on 13 April 1919 were an important turning point in the Indian struggle for Independence. On that day General Reginald Dyer opened fire on an unarmed crowd in Amritsar, killing hundreds and wounding thousands.

The exhibition will look at the day of the massacre at Amritsar as well as the events before and after. The exhibition will put a particular emphasis on using first-hand testimonies and accounts of people who were at the Jallianwala Bagh on that day and who witnessed events in both the periods before and after 13 April 1919 to give a deeper understanding of what some of the root causes and effects were. The exhibition will include archival images, footage, and audio.
