The Tibet Oral History Project films the oral histories of the oldest surviving Tibetan refugees in order to document, preserve and disseminate the culture, language and history of the Tibetan people. The elders’ eyewitness accounts will ensure that the wisdom culture and true history of Tibet will not be erased by an occupying force, but will instead be preserved for generations to come.
