SAFE (Saving Antiquities for Everyone) is an organization dedicated to raising public awareness about the irreversible damage to the study of history and culture that results from looting, smuggling, and trading illicit antiques. Advocating cultural preservation and educational outreach, SAFE is on the vanguard of delineating the necessity of ethical practices in relation to historical and cultural objects. Recently, SAFE published this interview with Omara Khan Massoudi, Director of the National Museum of Afghanistan. Massoudi comments on his hopes for the future and why cultural preservation is so essential in Afghanistan.
