Unhappy Do NOT forget! 1986-2006

20 years ago, I was outside picking flowers and making tea of them, while a strange cloud had just rained over the field. While I have nothing (cross fingers), thousands and thousand of people suffer from this:

My thoughts go to every victim of the biggest civil N-tragedy and especially to the Ukrainian and Belorussian people.

And let the responsibles of not telling us the truth burn in hell

Precious and fragile things
Need special handling...

I pray you learn to trust
Have faith in both of us
And keep room in your hearts for two

As a bit of an aside......My dad took me to a football game at the time, when I was 2, and it started raining heavily.....even though we were in Scotland (and so, hopefully safe ), it really freaked him out, and he's never been the same about safety and stuff since. Everything that there is any doubt about the safety of is a potential threat.

It is surely one of the saddest events in human history, and we MUST learn the lessons of Chernobyl, and forever remember the victims

Huge tragedy. I wrote my thesis on this at university. It's a very emotional subject. The Ukraine is so unlucky, but Belarus even more so. The wind direction took radioactive matter through Belarus because Chernobyl was located near the border. If the wind had been blowing in the other direction (towards Kiev) the human health effects could have been much greater.

Yes, indeed

Here's an animation of the cloud, which is not the only contamination Belarus got.

Did the Polish authorities say something about the problem?

We didn't know, we didn't take iode. My aunt's husband was listening to Free Europe and it was him who told us, until the authorities recieved orders to say something no one knew. Afterwards it was too late for iode.

it was the first time Polish authorities did something despite soviet ban, when Soviet Union kept quiet about Czarnobyl, Poland made an action with Lugol's iodine to protect their own citizens (this made SU very angry)

Doesn't it shock you how many young people of our generation know so little about this. I mean, sure, we all were really young when it happened. But it's something that happened during out lifetime. We should all at least KNOW what happaned, etc?

Wow, this is really lucky for the Polish people. Good news.

Well, I think people know more about Chernobyl than the general knowledge of what happened during the whole Iron curtain.

I was born 5 days after that. Fortunately I'm ok, but lots of children from this time have serious diseases now
