A museum in Herat province of Afghanistan keeps the grisly memory of the Soviet invasion alive through its various displays consisting of statues, panoramas, memorial walls and military weapons. The museum, known as Manzar-e-Jehad, or Jihad Museum, was founded by Abdel Wahab Qattali to tell the story of the nine years of war his country fought before the invading Soviet Union pulled back its troops on February 15, 1989.
