The Last Reunion
Untold Secrets from World War II’s Secret City
by Jay Searcy
…..I was a child of Oak Ridge, the hidden town in East Tennessee where the Atomic Bomb was developed. There were 11,000 of us from virtually every state, children whose parents worked around the clock for 2 1/2 years and ushered in the Atomic Age.
…..In our mid-seventies now, we came home for a last reunion in the summer of 2010 and brought our stories with us – memories of our working parents and our neighbors and the genius scientists who lived together behind a secret curtain and helped create the miracle of Oak Ridge. What did we see there, what did we hear there and whatever happened to them and to us?
