Ugandan Asians

Karim Hussain, a records specialist at The National Archives, delivered a talk on what the documents can tell us about the expulsion and the British government’s response. The audience were then given an opportunity to look at the original records for themselves, many for the very first time.

This talk was recorded as part of a collaboration between The National Archives and The Exiles Project, marking 40 years since the expulsion of Asians from Uganda by Idi Amin.
