History Documentary:  The Manhattan Project - Race for the Atomic Bomb (Tues. Sept 22 @ 2:00 p.m.)

Amidst a ruin of defeated Germany, the leaders of the three great allies powers - US President Harry Truman, British Prime Minister Winston Churchill, and Soviet leader Joseph Stalin - met for the first conference after WWII in Europe.  On the agenda was  Japan’s defeat, and more significantly, the future of Europe.  The communist dictator and the leaders of the two greatest democracies were at best uneasy allies.  In the first morning session, Stalin proved aggressive and tough, but that very morning President Truman received a top-secret telephone message from Washington, it was a short but momentous conversation.  The US had successfully tested the atom bomb.  We will all be watching the documentary at the same time!  Stay on Zoom after the program for discussion.
