Zusammenfassung

Eyewitness testimonies occupy a very prominent place in the history of the Tunguska problem. To begin with they formed the basis of this subject. Without these testimonies, even if some were misquoted by newspaper reporters, Leonid Kulik would probably have never known about the Tunguska event, and it would have been forgotten forever.
