Oral histories sit at the heart of Girmit. Our ambition is to build a bank of oral histories. Phase one of this adventure is the 10 oral histories below. Where possible we have included the original oral history interview. In some cases we have used an actor to read the family story. By collecting audio and video interviews and suitable oral history material this provides us with an insight into aspects of British Fijian personal memory, identity and experience. This is the lived experience stories of the family of the Girmityas.
