Border Roads (collection)
a collection by Latton Social Services and Development Ltd.

Additional information about this project

The Border Roads to Memories and Reconciliation project compiled a collection of stories related to life on either side of the border when many of the unapproved border roads were closed during the conflict. The intention was to all people to "express their feelings in relation to the the closure of border roads and the impact it had on their lives" (from the project flyer).
(The stories have been deposited with Accounts of the Conflict but they have a 'delayed access' date. However, the stories are available to view at the Border Roads website.)
