I approached the book with great anticipation. Having studied the accident thoroughly at a distance, I hoped it would help me better understand what took place. Alas, except for a few new vignettes and about 77 photos of the reactor and decontamination efforts, some not published heretofore, I was disappointed.
This book was published in 1987 - when a lot of information about the accident still hadn't been released (much info came after the collapse of the USSR). So it's interesting in that regard - the author seems to think that Pripyat (the city nearest to Chernobyl that was occupied by the plant's workers and families) will be inhabitable soonish (it's still not habitable today)
This book should be read by all those folks who wish to dismiss those affected by nuclear accidents. This book gives a written visual of the precious Ukrainian people who died, were injured and those still living who we should never forget. God bless the Ukrainian country and all her people. Here is to wishing we can never again have any more nuclear accidents anywhere in our fragile world.
A few weeks ago I got a book by a Dutch photographer Robert Knoth called Certicaat nr 000358. It's a photographic record of nuclear disasters' effects on people's lives in Ukraine, Russia, and Kazakhstan. The pictures are really striking – and not only because they show the human aspect of tragedy. They just describe what they've felt, seen, smelled and heard. SMELLS The reactor was on fire. The Japanese robot is on the roof for five minutes, and then breaks down. The Russian robot is up there two hours! Then a command comes in over the loudspeaker: "Private Ivanov! In two hours, you're welcome to come down and have a cigarette break.
