Bombing of Hiroshima First Topic for FRCC-Boulder County History Series
Three members of the history faculty at Front Range Community College will lead a discussion on the decision to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima at the first History Film Series and Discussion Tuesday, Sept. 25.
Film clips from documentaries and movies will supplement the discussion by Mary Ann Grim, David Reden, and Mark Mavrogianes. The trio will consider such questions as why was the atomic bomb dropped on Aug. 6, 1945, was there ever any doubt expressed within the Truman Administration, was the dropping of the bomb immoral, was the bomb necessary, and how did the bomb help create the New World Order.
Upcoming History Film Series and Discussions will consider the Cuban Missile Crisis (Oct. 22) and the rise of the Nazi state (Nov. 27).
