S reveal the fear anger and uncertainty with which they still live Composed of interviews in monologue form Voices from Chernobyl is a crucially important work of immense force unforgettable in its emotional power and hones. I will never forget a documentary I saw about the nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl power plant in 1986 This documentary The Battle of Chernobyl directed by Thomas Johnson provides a very good understanding of what happened at the time of the accident and afterwards It contains rare original footage and interviews with people who were present or involved in the handling of this catastrophe It s available on demand on Vimeo and I highly recommend it because I think it s a really good addition to this book I would have struggled understanding the translator s preface and the tenor of some testimonies if I hadn t seen this documentary The prologue of the book is in fact the first interview with the widow of a fireman who arrived at the plant a short time after the explosion Until now I ve never heard such a heartbreaking story I doubt anyone who reads this interview will ever be able to forget it The book also ends with another heartbreaking testimony again from a widow The long term suffering of her husband is horrifying In between these there are interviews with all sorts of people affected by the Chernobyl disaster The author wrote the testimonies down just the way they were told That makes them very personal and honest On the other hand sometimes it made no sense at all what some where saying Overall it s an eye opening honest work that s very different in approach How do people feel think live after being confronted with this terrifying catastrophe Chernobyl is like the war of all wars There s nowhere to hide Not underground not underwater not in the air p75 It was constantly being compared to the war But this was bigger War you can understand But this People felt silent p141 This level of lying this incredible level with which Chernobyl is connected in our minds was comparable only to the level of lies during the big war p143
