Rina Kurland Sisterhood Book Club of B’nai Shalom presents a book review and conversation led by Carol Golub.

A Jewish nuclear physicist is accused of spying while working on the nuclear bomb in Los Alamos. Hannah’s War explores the wartime life of a brilliant Jewish female physicist, Dr. Hannah Weiss, working to develop the first atomic bomb, loosely based on Dr. Lise Meitner. It is a gripping tale of love, war, deception and espionage moving between 1930s Berlin and 1940s New Mexico.
