Nobel Prize Literature 2015

 

The Nobel Prize in Literature 2015 was assigned to the Belarusian Svetlana Alexievich.
Was awarded "for her polyphonic writings, a monument to suffering and courage in our time".

Svetlana, born in Ukraine and raised in Belarus, writes precisely about all issues that for so many years, our associations and ICN, had to face for remembering the Chernobyl disaster; fighting for all those who even today are still affected and disadvantaged, providing an opportunity for them to have a better future with more possibilities, despite their circumstances and consequences after the catastrophe. This remains an ongoing struggle, although it is to be fulfilled next year the 30th anniversary.

Her most famous pieceis titled precisely Voices from Chernobyl, which tells the harrowing story, which begins:

"I don't know what I should talk about- about death or about love? Or are they the same?Which one should I talk about?"

 

In short, it is an important and deserved recognition, and we can only congratulate Svetlana for her great career, courage and achievements.

In addition, Spain and the National Association Fedasib want, on behalf of all the associations that carry out projects of healing of children affected by Chernobyl, promote the candidacy of Chernobyl liquidators for Princess of Asturias Cooperation Prize 2016. A deserved recognition more than three decades later .
