Will hopefully be looking after one of the 'Chernobyl Children' (through Friends of Chernobyl's Children charity) next year and would love to read up a bit more about the background of the tragedy, how it has affected the population even to this day.
If anyone has any books they can recommend, it would be much appreciated. Thanks!
