To raise more awareness on the presence of detention camps in Kenya and the brutal history of the colonial period, we have created a number of digital assets to help interpret, understand and visualize this past.
These assets include 3D models, maps, video/audio interviews and documentaries (with more coming soon). It is our hope that they contribute towards a greater understanding of colonial history by enabling us to visualize and make accessible previously suppressed/hidden narratives.
To use any of these assets, email us email@example.com

Operation Legacy - Documentary
Operation Legacy was a British Colonial Office program to destroy or hide files, to prevent them being inherited by its ex-colonies. In 2009, a group of Kenyan war veterans sued the British government in order to reveal the truth about what really happened in Kenya between 1952-1960.
