(First person experience of German scientist working on a cure for the mutants, Dr.Edward Richtofen) It is April 26, 1986 and Chernobyl has just exploded. It has killed 31 people and almost 4,000 people could have long-term effects. That is where it gets scary. It is almost 30 years later and those 4,000 people died, but that’s what the public thinks. They think that they are dead, but the Russians have leaked that the people have died; they have come back...from the dead.
I was going to live” (129)! Not everyone survives the gas chambers, thousands die every single day of WWII: women, men and children, but he survived.

The historical seriousness of the battle of the bulge and bombing of Dresden are contrasted by many ironies and dark humour; the fantastical, science-fiction-type place of Tralfamadore is, in truth, an outlet for Vonnegut to show his incredibly serious fatalistic views.
