ATOMIC INSANITY TALK: PART II: SEE: VOICES FROM CHERNOBYL BY
SVETLANA ALEXIEVICH 2005 DALKEY ARCHIVE PRESS. PAGES 5 TO 23.
VASYA AND LYUDMILLA LIVED ABOVE THE FIRE STATION WHERE VASYA
WORKED AS A FIREFIGHTER. THEY WERE JUST MARRIED AND WERE VERY
MUCH IN LOVE. CHERNOBYL ATOMIC PLANT HAD JUST EXPLODED. VASYA
WENT TO PUT OUT THE RADIOACTIVE FIRE WITH NO PROTECTION.
LYUDMILLA: I SAW THE FLAMES. EVERYTHING WAS RADIENT. THE WHOLE
SKY. A TALL FLAME. THE HEAT WAS AWFUL AND HE IS STILL NOT BACK.

THE AMBULANCES ARE RADIOACTIVE,
STAY AWAY.
I SAW HIM. HE WAS ALL SWOLLEN & PUFFED UP. YOU COULD BARELY SEE HIS EYES. IN THE HOSPITAL VASYA SAID-GET OUT OF HERE. GO. YOU HAVE OUR CHILD.
THE DOCTORS-NURSES-SOLDIERS WORE SURGICAL MASKS.
NO ONE TALKED ABOUT RADIATION.
VASYA & 5 OTHER FIREFIGHTERS WERE TAKEN TO RADIATION HOSPITAL 6 IN MOSCOW.
THEY ARE EVACUATING CHERNOBYL.
I FOLLOWED TO MOSCOW.
NURSE SAID "LISTEN: HIS CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM & SKULL
ARE COMPROMISED. YOU CAN SEE HIM. NO KISSING-NO HUGGING.
YOU HAVE 1/2 HOUR."
LYUDMILLA MADE TURKEY SOUP FOR 6 FIREMEN.
WILL THEY LIVE. AN OLD WOMAN JANITOR TAUGHT ME
"THERE ARE SICKNESSES THAT CAN NOT BE CURED".
VASYA STARTED TO CHANGE--EVERY DAY I MET A BRAND NEW PERSON.
THE BURNS CAME TO THE SURFACE IN HIS MOUTH-TONGUE-CHEEKS-LITTLE LESIONS GREW-SKIN FELL OFF-BODY TURNED BLUE-RED-GREY-BROWN.
THEIR WAS NOT ANY TIME TO CRY.
I LOVED HIM. WE HAD JUST GOT MARRIED.
THEY MEASURED ME WITH A RADIATION DOSIMETER. CLOTHES HOT.
THEY GAVE ME HOSPITAL ROBE & I BECAME MY LOVES NURSE.
I MADE CHICKEN SOUP- HE COULD NOT EAT IT-OR A RAW EGG.
MY FATHER, SISTER, BROTHER BROUGHT ME MONEY.
IT WAS V DAY IN MOSCOW.
I TOLD YOU I WOULD ALWAYS GIVE YOU FLOWERS ON HOLIDAYS
AND HE GAVE ME 3 CARNATIONS. I KISSED HIM.
MY LOVE- MY ONE AND ONLY. I STAYED WITH MY LOVE ALL NIGHT.
VASYA HAD A BONE MARROW OPERATION USING MY 14 YEAR
OLD SISTER LYUDA WHO HAD 18 PUNCTURES IN HER CHEST.
NOW SHE IS AN INVALID.
VASYA WAS IN A BIO-CHAMBER. NO ONE ALLOWED INSIDE
IT. THEY CAN GIVE HIM SHOTS FROM THE OUTSIDE.
HE WAS CONSTANTLY CALLING "LYUSYA-WHERE ARE YOU?
I PUSHED ASIDE THE CURTAIN AND WENT IN TO MY LOVE.
HIS FIREFIGHTER FRIENDS-TISCHURA IS DEAD-TITENOK IS DEAD. DEAD.
A SLEDGEHAMMER TO MY BRIAN.
HIS SKIN STARTED CRACKING ON HIS ARMS & LEGS.
HE WAS COVERED IN BOILS. CLUMPS OF HAIR FELL OUT.
MY BROTHER CAME AND SAID" I WONT LET YOU GO IN THERE."
MY FATHER SAID" YOU THINK YOU CAN STOP HER.
SHE WILL GET IN BY THE FIRE ESCAPE"
I AM READY TO DO WHAT IT TAKES
SO THAT VASYA DOES NOT THINK ABOUT DEATH AND
ABOUT THE FACT THAT HIS DEATH IS HORRIBLE,
THAT I AM AFRAID OF HIM.
THE NURSE SAYS. "THIS IS NOT YOUR HUSBAND ANYMORE,
NOT A BELOVED PERSON. BUT A RADIOACTIVE OBJECT
WITH A STRONG DENSITY OF POISONING"
"BUT I LOVE HIM. I LOVE HIM."
I AM WHISPERING TO HIM " I LOVE YOU" AS HE SLEEPS.
HE ONLY FELL ASLEEP AT NIGHT AFTER HE HAD TAKEN MY HAND.
THAT WAS HIS HABIT-TO HOLD MY HAND WHILE HE SLEPT. ALL NIGHT.
SO IN THE HOSPITAL I TAKE HIS HAND AND DONT LET GO"
I HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH I LOVED HIM. HIM ... JUST HIM.
I WAS LIKE A BLIND PERSON.
I COULD NOT EVEN FEEL THE POUNDING UNDERNEATH MY HEART.
I WAS 6 MONTHS PREGNANT.
I THOUGHT HE WAS PROTECTED.
HE WAS BORN AND DIED OF RADIATION DAMAGE.
VASYA DIED.
HE GOT 1,600 ROENTGEN-400 IS LETHAL.
MY LOVE WAS A NUCLEAR REACTOR.
BAN NUCLEAR REACTORS AND WEAPONS.
PEACE
