Chernobyl's Legacy, 26 Years Later

The world's worst nuclear disaster began with a systems test at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Ukraine on April 26, 1986. Over a quarter of a century has now passed, but the echo remains strong for those who lived through the accident. Each year in the week after Easter, Ukrainians celebrate remembrance days: a special time for villages within the Chernobyl exclusion zone to visit the graves of lost loved ones and homes left behind. Authorities grant one-day visiting permission to the former inhabitants of the abandoned villages, who use the opportunity to reunite with surviving neighbors and walk the streets of what some consider the only home they'™ve had. (Here, a family leaves the abandoned village of Ilovnitsa in their Lada.)
