Palevsky needed to come to terms with the moral complexities of the atomic bomb. Her parents worked on its development during WW2 & were profoundly changed by that experience. After they died, unanswered questions sent their daughter on a search for understanding. This compelling heart-wrenching chronicle is the story of that quest, a journey into the minds, memories, & emotions of the bomb builders. Scientists Hans Bethe, Edward Teller, Joseph Rotblat, Herbert York, Philip Morrison, & Robert Wilson, & philosopher David Hawkins, responded to Palevsky's personal questions in a way that expands their previously pub. statements. She also captures other remembrances of the bomb through chance encounters with people who were there.Ó Photos
