"I think we live in such a banality of horrors, horrors surround us, so a real reportage is a kind of break through this banality. When we speak about any situation, be it Chechnya or something else, we speak not only about this concrete situation but also about something of our deeper human nature."Svetlana Alexievitch (jury member 2003, 2004 & 2005)
