Kerem Shalom of Concord is delighted to have Professor Steve Whitfield present “Oppenheimer: The Movie & Man.”
Christopher Nolan’s 2023 biopic of “the father of the atomic bomb” raises the most harrowing questions about the formation of scientific genius and the exercise of military power. What the movie could not cover in more than three hours—or could not treat adequately or clearly—from the Jewish dimension to the perils of the Cold War, will be the subject of this presentation.
Of note…Oppenheimer has been nominated for more Oscars than any other movie.
Professor Whitfield taught American Studies at Brandeis University from 1972-2017 and is now Brandeis Professor Emeritus. He won a number of major teaching awards and is the author of ten books on twentieth-century American history and on American Jewish history.
