Mass cremation, Bhopal 1984
Mass cremations were held alongside the communal graves. ” The bodies were strewn all over and the stench of death was overpowering”, recalls 76-year old Amar Chand Ajmera, a social worker. ” The dead came to the cremation grounds in heap after heap, loaded in pick-up vans. We did not have enough firewood to burn separate pyres. I remember, we cremated more than 2,000 in a day”.

Help Us Save The Museum

The museum does not accept any government or corporate funds; so far it has survived on small, individual donations apart from funding from environmental and activist groups in India and abroad. The fundraiser in 2017 helped us sustain for the past two years. Our funds are now exhausted. For now, the museum will be dismantled unless we raise funds immediately. Help us save the museum.
