The “Voices of the Manhattan Project” oral history website, a joint project of the Atomic Heritage Foundation and the Los Alamos Historical Society, now features 500 video and audio interviews with Manhattan Project veterans, family members, and experts.

“The website contains 500 first-hand accounts, providing a kaleidoscope of perspectives on the Manhattan Project. Readily accessible online, the collection is a treasure trove for journalists, scholars, documentary producers, museums, educators, students and audiences worldwide,” said Cynthia C. Kelly, president of AHF.

Launched in 2012, the “Voices of the Manhattan Project” website now reaches more than 10,000 people per month.

Both organizations are continuing to record interviews around the country. AHF and LAHS hope to publish an additional 500 interviews on the website by 2020, and to expand the scope of the site to include interviews with Cold War nuclear workers, Japanese atomic bomb survivors, and nuclear experts today.
