Chernobyl II

0315 - Ukraine, Chernobyl, Kopachi Village School HDR

A stuffed toy found in the classroom of the school in the abandoned village of Kopachi, found in the Chernobyl exclusion zone. This is the only remaining building in the village as the others were torn down and buried. The fear was that if the wooden buildings caught fire, more radioactive isotopes would be released into the atmosphere. All that remains of the other buildings are small mounds topped with a sign showing the international radiation symbol.
