Review Æ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ☆ Svetlana Alexievich

Ent personal accounts of the tragedy Journalist Svetlana Alexievich interviewed hundreds of people affected by the meltdown from innocent citizens to firefighters to those called in to clean up the disaster and their storie. Sometime in the future we will understand Chernobyl as a philosophy Two states divided by barbed wire one the zone itself the other everywhere else People have hung white towels on the rotting stakes around the zone as if they were crucifixes It s a custom here People go there as if to a graveyard A post technological world Time has gone backwards What is buried there is not only their home but a whole epoch An epoch of faith In science In an ideal of social justice A great empire came apart at the seems collapsed First Afghanistan then Chernobyl When the empire disintegrated we were on our own I hesitate to say it butwe love Chernobyl We have come to love it It is the meaning of our lives which we have found again the meaning of our sufferingLike the war The world heard about us Belarusians after Chernobyl It was our introduction to Europe Chairwoman Woman s committee of Children of ChernobylMy own memories of April 26 1986 and the Chernobyl catastrophe are vague I was only nine years old and not interested in the news I do however remember my parents being glued to the TV set on that day I didn t fully understand what was going on but knew it was badOver time my knowledge of the disaster remained sketchy picking up bits of information here and there but it felt to me like the whole event was brushed under the carpet for the rest of the world to forget no outside eyes getting on to what really happened in the clean up operation Until now and reading Alexievich s book the only image that was strong in my mind is of the abandoned bumper cars from the visiting fair rotting away in a mechanical graveyardThat s now all changedWhatever her genre Svetlana Alexievich is an original a true voice a voice that is hers and hers alone but it s through the voice of others the ones the rest of the world never got to here opening up on their thoughts living smack bang in the middle of the worse possible nightmare Exploring pain and loss on an unprecedented scale the forgotten speak out making for one of the most upsetting harrowing and heart felt books I will ever get to read If there is a light at the end of the tunnel it s no than a pinprick to the naked eye this is writing of immense suffering of death the soul of mankind rocked to it s core But it is also filled with a gigantic love an all powerful love that no amount of radiation could ever destroy as these people show what big hearts us humans carry around with us Some of the accounts within I just couldn t uite believe that had me seeing red Surely this is some sort of joke how the hell could these things be aloud to happen this was 1986 not 1896 the bodies in control or should that be no control what so ever should hang their heads in shame The amount of deaths and deformities that should never have been allowed to happen makes me sick to the stomach Some were unavoidable Most weren tA true history of its people need be no than the howls of despair of millions of souls Punctuated by moments of incredible tenderness courage and grim humour The scale of the devastation and its insidious nature are perhaps beyond the power of the individual mind to imagine which is one good reason why the polyphonic form Alexievich has made her own is so uniue and so appropriate Only the voice of the witnesses can do the events justice and in Chernobyl Prayer after some shocking facts about the explosion and its immediate aftermath it s the testimony of those living close by that grab you around the neck before dragging you off into their world Alexievich s documentary approach makes the experiences vivid sometimes almost unbearably so but it s a remarkably democratic way of constructing a book and at no point did I ever lose attention It s far too important for that Svetlana Alexievich fully deserved the Nobel Prize for her work But compare this to the agonising accounts she writes about it soon becomes meaningless A book I didn t want to read but I HAD to read
