Asleep in peace – and awake again in war: This is how the Ukrainian TV journalist Olha Petriv (36) describes the war in Ukraine. For weeks she has been on the run with her sister Iryna (41) and their children Sophia (13) and Kyle (10). Petriv’s boyfriend finally brings her to Switzerland.

In the days after her arrival, however, the journalist is plagued by pangs of conscience. Petriv is constantly in contact with family and friends in Ukraine. What if something happens to them? What if she had stayed and helped? Could she have helped at all? The pangs of conscience increase. “After that, another feeling suddenly came: shame. I was really ashamed,” says Petriv. “I felt bad for letting my country down. Many of my friends stayed, only I left. I felt like a coward.”
