Once upon a time in Europe?

Shavua tov, a good week to everyone.

There's a collection of pictures from Afghanistan in the 1950's and 1960's online. One of them is at the top of this post.
Afghanistan was not always such a repressive country. Photographs from the 1950s and 60s depict a very different Afghanistan; one where female students sat next to their male peers, where girls scouts worked along with boy scouts, where, in parks and playgrounds, buses and record stores, hospitals and schools, women were seen in equal numbers as men.

These collection of images offer a rare insight into Afghanistan’s past.

What's changed? Radical Islam, which moved in after the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in 1979.

How long will it be until we have a collection called Once Upon a Time in Europe?
