Disability in Times of War

Once the Russian invasion of #Ukraine started, people with #disabilities suffered tremendously. And amid the panic and chaos that followed the invasion, many were unable to evacuate from their homes and couldn’t access bomb shelters. In this episode of the second season of the podcast series “Europe Talks Back”, you can hear the story of @Tanya Herasymova, who is one of the approximately 2.7 million Ukrainians with disabilities. She managed to flee and ever since she’s been helping fellow Ukrainians with disabilities stuck near the frontlines of the #war in Ukraine.

I never asked why my grandmother Mercedes speaks Russian, German, French and Spanish perfectly. Perhaps because I sensed that this why was marked by a delicate history… A history of childhoods without parents. A story of farewells, of reunions, of escapes and persecutions. A story marked by the history of 20th century Europe: the Spanish Civil War, the Second World War, and the Cold War. I never asked why. But now… I need to break that wall. I need to understand which parts of those wars, of those untold stories, still live in me. Join me on this journey through the past to understand where we came from, who we are, and where we are heading.
