Lviv Regional Children's Specialized Clinic
Lviv, Ukraine 2000

Less than a year after this photograph of Martushka was taken, The Children of Chornobyl Relief, who sponsored the documentary, went to the hospital searching for her.

When they showed the doctors who had worked with Martushka the photo, they said they were too late, she had already passed away.
