Einstein and the Bomb

The recent hit docudrama on Netflix, Einstein and the Bomb, explores the conflict felt by the father of atomic energy insofar as his being an ardent pacifist, but also Jewish, and wanting to sound the alarm over the evil he could foresee within the Hitler regime in Germany. Later he was further conflicted about what happened in Japan and the subsequent nuclear anxiety the world continues to live with now.
