100 Testimonies is an interactive multimedia study into the history of Afghanistan in the period 1978 to 1992.

From 1978 to 1992 there allegedly was a communist regime in power in Afghanistan. Members of security forces are supposed to have violated human rights on a large scale. The regime was overthrown in 1992 and many people fled the country. A part of the refugees came to the Netherlands. The echoes of war still resound; Afghans from all walks of life live (partly illegally) together in the Netherlands. We would like to show the faces of these people, for whom a war ended long ago still has a large influence on their daily life.

We are gathering 100 (or more!) testimonies, which are captured on video and/or audio. Within this study there is room for all opinions and experiences: we will allow all voices to speak to give insight in a specific piece of history. For us, it is not about finding the truth when it comes to the life of one specific person, but we hope to provide insight in the reality of the history of Afghanistan.

Are or know someone who the period from 1978 to 1992 (or portion thereof) has experienced in Afghanistan, and who like to be / want to tell her story?
