Ukraine: Chernobyl – Michael Forster Rothbart's Photos; Mohamed Makhzangi's Book

The Uncataloged Museum reports on the opening of Michael Forster Rothbart‘s Chernobyl photo exhibit in Kyiv. Bint Battuta in Bahrain reviews Mohamed Makhzangi's Memories of a Meltdown; the book's author, an Egyptian, happened to be on a post-doctoral medical fellowship in the Soviet Union in 1986: “The first section of Memories of a Meltdown, the largest part of the book, consists of scenes that Makhzangi describes as ‘investigative literary reportage; stories that celebrate the reality of lived moments’, as he watched and experienced the response to the disaster in Kiev.”
