Over the next days teams worked to put out fires at the Power Station. They constructed a huge concrete shell around it to contain the radioactive material, risking their own lives. More than 30 people died during the accident and clean-up operation. Thousands more have suffered cancer as a result of radiation poisoning.

When families fled, they had to leave everything behind. These shoes sum that up.
