Kazakhstan – Semipalatinsk

Kazakhstan. Naurizbek Umarov, aged 85, lies on his bed at his home in the contaminated village of Bodene. He witnessed the atomic explosions and lives in the contaminated village of Bodene situated close to the edge of the test site. “Every month we would see a blinding flash of light and a mushroom cloud rise up into the sky. The windows shook every time, and they often broke because of the shock wave from the explosion. The authorities didn’t tell us what it was, but only said to stay at home after the explosions. We saw hundreds of them.”
