The Karen History and Culture Preservation Society archive contains a number of Books, Magazines, Photographs, VCDs, Newspaper clippings and other materials. The society is attempting to release a number of these documents digitally, beginning with the KNU Bulletin which saw life between 1985 and 1993 and was edited by Pu Sgaw Ler Taw until is sad demise on the 7th March 1989. Although the collection is still incomplete it is hoped to release those issues that we have still not obtained at a later date. The issues will be uploaded on a daily basis.
The Society is grateful to Mahn Robert Ba Zan and the Burma Border Consortium (now TBBC) for allowing us access to their issues and to the Karen National Union for allowing their publication.
