  • Summary:

    During World War I, Einstein, the anti-militarist, was horrified to see his great friend, the chemist Fritz Haber, develop asphyxiating gases. But, at the start of World War II, it was the same Einstein who wrote to President Roosevelt urging him to develop a nuclear bomb …

    Journalist François de Closets examines the life of Albert Einstein revealing a less talked about side of theis famous scientist.: the role of the physicist and his friend, the famous chemist Fritz Haber, in the invention of weapons of mass destruction during the two World Wars, namely asphyxiating gases and the atomic bomb. How did men known for their pacifist positions go, in the name of science, from basic research to total destruction?
