The hour-long lecture will be followed by a Q&A segment. It is free and open to the public. Prof. Bernstein, a widely published expert on A-bomb history, will present a planned resonse--partly in agreement and partly in disagreement--to the noted film maker Oliver Stone's documentary, "The Bomb."

Comments

We would love to watch Prof. Bernstein's lecture on the A-bomb on Japan. Please tell us where it is possible. There is a discussion related to this issue in My son's social studies class in his high school. The majority think that the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki were justified and necessary. He wants to present facts which had been hidden from the public for a long time. His essay is due next week. Please help!
