Ozoemena LBHP Questionnaire

This 3-minute questionnaire was designed by Stanley Onyemechalu from the University of Cambridge, UK in collaboration with the Centre for Memories, Enugu as part of his doctoral research titled: Heritage & the legacies of violent conflict: The ‘Biafra war’ (1967-1970) and the people of Igboland, Nigeria. These questions aim to explore the level of intergenerational knowledge/memory transfer of the Nigeria-Biafra War among young people (Ages 16 - 35) in Igboland, Nigeria. This is completely anonymous and strictly for academic purposes.
