As I watched the HBO miniseries about Chernobyl I thought incessantly about the people the first responders the farmers the children In short the entire affected population Lies were told contaminated food consumed lives were lost and are still being lost The human cost is incalculable and ongoing to this day Chernobyl should not be referred to as an “accident” It was and is an unimaginable disaster It destroyed an empire demoralized a people and shocked the world This anthology published in 1997 makes public the profound physical and psychological effects both during and after the disaster The people speak Over and over again you read “We didn’t know We believed You can’t understand It was like a war zone” Their experiences are difficult to read searing and essential Let us hope Fukushima Daiichi is the last nuclear disaster to occur

Today April 26th is the 26th 27th anniversary of Chernobyl catastrophe In case you're wondering no Google did NOT feature it on its home page same as last year sadly But shouldn't humanity remember this disasterThis is one of the most horrifying books I have ever read It reads like a postapocalyptic story except for all of it is horrifyingly real Svetlana Alexievich a journalist provides real but almost surreal in their horror oral accounts of Chernobyl disaster On April 26 1986 an explosion of reactor 4 at the Chernobyl nuclear power station marked the transition from the idea of a peaceful atom to the worst nuclear catastrophe in history This was a disaster largely hushed up by the government; people were lied to the effects were minimized and brushed off and there were not enough resources for a proper and safe clean up These true stories are heart wrenching and shocking honest and resigned angry and hopeless The city of Pripyat which was home to the workers of the Chernobyl nuclear station remains abandoned since that fateful April of 1986 People were thrown into the areas where machines were unable to function due to radiation while wearing little than t shirts and euipped with shovels People were on the burning roof of the reactor without any protection People were dying from acute radiation sickness in the most horrifying ways imaginable Scientists tried to sound alarm but were silenced Produce heavily contaminated with radiation was still exported to other parts of the Soviet Union Contaminated items from looted towns and villages appeared all over the country People were whisked from their homes on buses and told that they would be gone for only a few days Pets were shot to contain spread of contamination Visiting officials came in full radiations suits; their local guide was wearing a sundress and sandals Radiation meters readings were either ignored or falsified Officials were bringing people out for May Day parades outside in accordance with orders from above and then watched their own family members succumb to the disease Listless sick children live in surrounding areas and are just waiting to die Alexievich lets the eyewitness accounts speak for themselves with very little editorial voice Occasionally she clarifies the emotions or the reactions of the interviewees but for the most part she lets them speak in their own voice She does not preach or editorialize and that makes the book poignantThese are stories of people robbed of their present and future of the disaster that is still claiming lives Its effects will be felt for decades to come in the sick children mutated animals abandoned cities and villages and destroyed lives I cried when I was reading this book How can you not 5 stars for the fact that she was courageous enough to listen to the heartbreaking accounts and compile all these stories I would not have had enough strength to do that

Svetlana Alexievich ☆ 5 Summary

Charnobyl skaia malitvaτήμονες μελλοθάνατοι και συγγενείς μελλοθανάτων μητέρες που γέννησαν παραμορφωμένα παιδιά μαθητές που δε συναντιούνται πια στο σχολείο μα σε μονάδες λευχαιμικών ασθενών αγρότες που ξεριζώθηκαν από την απαγορευμένη ζώνη γονιοί που έθαψαν τα παιδιά τους γυναίκες που είδαν τους άντρες τους να λιώνο?. You feel how some completely unseen thing can enter and then destroy the whole world can crawl into you Dejecting and uintessential Voices from Chernobyl The Oral History of a Nuclear Disaster contains the harrowing accounts of lives lost and lived after the cataclysmic disaster that happened on April 26 1986 near the city of Pripyat The explosion created a seemingly bright crimson glow in the sky Awestruck residents nearby marvelled at its exhilarating beauty We didn't know that death could be so beautiful Though I wouldn’t say that it had no smell—it wasn't a spring or an autumn smell but something else and it wasn't the smell of earth Little did they know that these series of blasts that had occurred inside block number 4 of the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant has sent forth unbelievable amounts of uranium and other atoms into the atmosphere capable of obliterating mutating and rending flesh at will Time was its greatest ally and death was around the corner fully anticipating the setting sun We already had thousands of tons of cesium iodine lead circonium cadmium berillium borium an unknown amount of plutonium the uranium graphite reactors of the Chernobyl variety also produced weapons grade plutonium for nuclear bombs—450 types of radionuclides in all It was the euivalent of 350 atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima These are poignant vignettes about survival compassion resilience fortitude ignorance pain hope and love I commend Alexievich for her astounding journalism that she was able to give these individuals their voices How I wished this nuclear meltdown never occurred — so many innocent lives have been lost when one values cost than the lives of others Truly humans never learn from the past With technology continuously improving the we are put into a situation where we are not well euipped enough to fully understand and handle such advancements sometimes to the detriment of our well being and even others How sure are you that history will never repeat itself At this rate we know what humans are capable of and if that is not ominously frightening I don't know what is It's disheartening for me to say that we will be the harbinger of our own demise I've wondered why everyone was silent about Chernobyl why our writers weren’t writing much about it — they write about the war or the camps but here they're silent Why Do you think it's an accident If we'd beaten Chernobyl people would talk about it and write about it Or if we'd understood Chernobyl But we don't know how to capture any meaning from it We're not capable of it We can't place it in our human experience or our human time frame So what's better to remember or to forget
