Entretien avec Galia Ackerman, mené par Luba Jurgenson le 27 juin 2018

In the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone – an area of approximatively 10 000 km2 in Ukraine and Belarus – living and dead landscapes coexist. An important activity continues to take place in this site: people live there – villagers who returned home, but also workers, researchers – and tens of thousands of tourists explore it every year. Galia Ackerman, author of three books on this subject, gives an overview of the “memory effects” of the Chernobyl accident.

Key words: Chernobyl, ruin, humanities, dark tourism, Judaism.
