Malaysiana: Unshackling History
Bert Tan, President, Malaysian Heritage and History Club
In conjunction with Merdeka and Malaysia Day, we bring you a four-part special exploring various themes related to patriotism and unity. In this first episode, we talk to Bert Tan, founder of the Malaysian Heritage and History Club, a group that promotes discussions on historical appreciation - free from constraints. We explore the importance of history, nation building and why it needs to be in the hands of the people, not institutions.
