Journalists who want to become war correspondents must spend a week in military barracks to survive what may happen to them in a real war.
The simulations and exercises are very reliable. Adepts are even subjected to torture or brutal interrogation.
They practice self-defense, build shelters in the woods and sleep in dormitories. They must be ready to attack around the clock.
They have to wear bulletproof vests and helmets weighing several kilograms throughout the week. They eat, sleep and live with the soldiers. Only after completing such a course, Polish journalists receive permission to travel to areas of armed conflicts.
Or, like me, they find they don’t want to do this.
