Product description

This powerful book will provide children with a better understanding of life in Afghanistan as Kabul fell to the Taliban. Using extracts from their collective diary on WhatsApp, kept during and following the fall of Kabul in 2021, this book gives children personal and compelling snapshots from a woman’s perspective. Each chapter will help to provide children with a better understanding of life as Kabul fell to the Taliban. “These are women on the cultural front line. Their diary is an archive of yet another milestone in the volatile history of Afghanistan.”Financial Times

  • Fully illustrated in colour by Afghan artist Sara Rahmani
  • Rising After the Fall is produced in collaboration with UNTOLD Narratives – a development programme for writers marginalized by community or conflict
  • Packed with detail on different aspects of life in Afghanistan both before and after the most recent takeover by the Taliban in August 2021
