The Kurdistan Memory Programme (KMP) is a new national archive of modern Kurdish history.
Since 2008, the KMP's experienced international team has traveled across Kurdistan, collecting stories from people who have witnessed major events in modern Kurdish history.
Over 1,000 interviews have been captured in high quality film and interactive multimedia. They combine with over 40 years of Kurdish historical footage to create a unique archive that is now available online.
The KMP's groundbreaking website brings a world class museum experience to the Web, illuminating over 500 years of Kurdish history in a collection that will inspire and enlighten future generations.
The Kurdish story is about epic sacrifice and courage in the face of colossal persecution. It is the story of an ancient national identity which has been expressed in defiance of those who seek to suppress it.
This is why the KMP is documenting the Kurdish story for the world: it must no longer be forgotten or denied.
