"...this book, which movingly illustrates the Chernobyl Legacy, is so important..." -- Kofi A. Annan, Secretary General of the United Nations
Chernobyl Legacy is a deeply powerful and moving book that portrays the terrible consequences of the greatest technological disaster of the twentieth century - the Chernobyl nuclear power plant accident.
On April 26, 1986, the nuclear reactor in Chernobyl, the Ukraine exploded, leaving more than 56 thousand square kilometers in 19 regions contaminated. Almost seven million lives were and continue to be affected. It entailed numerous human sacrifices, undermined people's health and led to irreversible environmental devastation, all of which persist today.
Chernobyl Legacy is a haunting document of the lives that were ruined, in particular those of the unborn and young children, most of who have severe genetic disorders and a host of lethal cancers. The book has essays by Adi Roche, founder of the Chernobyl Children's Project; Michael Douglas, United Nations Messenger for Peace, and United Nations Secretary General Kofi Anan.
