  1. I was 11 when it happened living in Warsaw, Poland. I remember someone knocking on our door in the middle of the night. When my parents opened the door we saw our neighbour standing at the door with a bottle of iodine in his hand. He told us to drink it and quickly explained why. It was already a couple days after the explosion and he found out about it from some underground radio station. Unfortunately our country leaders were keeping this secret the same as the Soviets did. Thank you for sharing

    • Thank you for commenting. I think it is one of those world events that most people who lived through it remember quite vividly how they felt at the time. It felt like a disaster on a scale beyond anything that had happened before (or, at least, it did to me).
