Citizens Checking Migration Information

(Original Caption) One of the greatest mass transfers of population in the history of the world has been going on since the recent creation of the two independent states, India and Pakistan. Violence, riots and death accompany the migrating peoples as frightened and weary Moslems flee from India into Pakistan, and Hindus move from Pakistan into India. Already hundreds of thousands of refugees have passed through the border city of Amritsar where government relief stations are opened to care for the victims of the tragic exodus.
