The village is built to house those affected by the nuclear disaster in the Chernobyl power station disaster happened on 26 April 1986.

The parents and children all suffer from multiple health problems linked to radiation exposure.

The pillow cases, handwoven by Alexander senior's mother, is the only souvenir they could take from their old home.
