"'Dear old world,' she murmured. 'You are very lovely, and I am glad to be alive in you.'"


"The Long Shadow of Chernobyl" - Gerd Ludwig

When Soviet authorities finally ordered the evacuation, the residents’ hasty departure often meant leaving behind their most personal belongings. The Soviet Union only admitted to the world that an accident had occurred three days after the explosion, when the nuclear cloud reached Sweden and scientists there noticed radiation on their shoes before entering their facility. Opachichi, Ukraine, 1993
