The greatest catastrophe in the history of nuclear energetics that occurred on 26th April 1986 is known to nearly everyone. This nuclear emergency was the most enormous failure of technology in the history of humankind and took place at what is now part of Ukraine near the town of Chernobyl. Thirty-five years have passed since this technological and human disaster happened but that doesn’t stop us from coming back. Among us, there are still people who not only remember this fateful event and were lucky enough to survive it but also contributed to lessening the impacts of the explosion. Many of them have fought an invisible but extremely insidious enemy, bore witness to shocking scenes, risked their lives. They saved not only Europe but the whole world from the horrifying consequences of a nuclear disaster that poses, even though it might not seem likely, a threat even in times of today’s modern civilization.
