In 1992 a civil war in Afghanistan turned the country upside down. It also littered the country with landmines. In this public radio story we hear from a man who saw childhood friends killed by landmines and who lost his father in the war. Landmines were a part of his life. He fled Afghanistan with his mother and eventually immigrated alone to Germany and eventually the Netherlands. The wind in the Netherlands was the inspiration for the device he made that allows for the safe detonation of old landmines that are hidden all over Afghanistan.
