The Tibet Oral History Project

The Tibet Oral History Project aims to preserve the history and culture of the Tibetan people. They record the life experiences of Tibetan elders who were forced to flee their homeland following the Chinese invasion. TOHP has videotaped the oral histories of 278 Tibetan elders living in exile. The goal of the Tibet Oral History Project is to document the life stories of Tibetan elders living in exile, and to disseminate that information through print, broadcast media and the Internet for the purposes of education and preservation of the culture and history of Tibet.
