Against the Wall – An Afghan Evacuation Story, Part 2

It was August 19th 2021, three days after Afghanistan fell to the Taliban. I received a startling email from Rahmat, one of our editors:

Dear Michael,

Hope you are doing well. Now I got to Poland. Warsaw airport. This is the contact number of a polish woman who was responsible to assemble us to travel to Poland. Hope you and Basir can find a solution to evacuate all members here.

    Thank you for your courage. Thank you for your willingness to be a witness and to share what you see with the rest of us.
    Stay safe,

    Your images bring back to me Ethiopia Peace Corps time.
    I hope your preparations are a great success!
