Oppenheimer - Movie Fundraiser for the Heretaunga Women's Centre
Join us for this amazing movie fundraiser - Oppenheimer.
This movie tells the story of "the father of the atomic bomb," J. Robert Oppenheimer, whose work at the Manhattan Project's Los Alamos Laboratory led to the invention of the first nuclear weapons during World War II. The new nuclear bombs, designed to end the Second World War, were later used in devastating attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan on August 6 and August 9, 1945 respectively. The two bombs killed over 100,000 people and levelled both cities to the ground.
“Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.”
― J. Robert Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer is an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning book American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer by Martin Sherwin and Kai Bird.
