Man muss den Salat einfach nur gründlicher waschen.

“You just have to wash the salad thoroughly”

The Chernobyl disaster is associated with high levels of radioactive contamination even after almost thirty-one years. The exclusion zone, which was built within a radius of thirty kilometers, is still closely monitored today and is uninhabitable due to increased radioactive radiation. This work deals with the nuclear disaster and its environment.

On the one hand, the historical course is shown, on the other hand, a report on the current state of the restricted zone and the nuclear power plant is delievered in parallel. The aim of the publication is to give the reader an insight into the course and consequences of the catastrophe, especially about the long-term consequences of a GAU.

The content of this publication is divided into a historical section and a journey report written by me. I visited the zone for about 2 days. Additionally, through the whole book runs a factually written time log, printed on different paper and format in contrast with the „diary“ pages.
