This year marks the 35th anniversary of the well know events that took place in Chernobyl in 1986, events that marked the memory of the world community in such a sudden and tragic way. For many of us who lived in the West Europe, some of our daily routines changed for more or less a limited slice of time, but for those who experienced the tragic events of Chernobyl, that day marked their lives forever: from that moment there was a “before” and an “after Chernobyl”, as happens in all wars.
