Udham Singh -The life of an Indian Revolutionary
23/9/2010 to 23/9/2010
Heritage Shared 2010
Although a controversial figure in terms of Anglo-Sikh history very little is known of Udham Singh. However his life spans a period of turbulence and resistance played out against the backdrop of increasing Sikh unrest against British occupation.
Marking the 70th anniversary of his trial and execution in London for the "avenge" killing of Michael O'Dwyer, this event will see Eve Haddow from ASHT present recent research on his life and legacy.
A not to be missed event exploring the tensions and contradictions at the very heart of 20th century Anglo Sikh history. Followed by a panel discussion and Q & A with Dr Gurnam Singh.
