"Because of the danger that Hitler might be
the first to have the bomb, I signed a letter to the President which
had been drafted by Szilard. Had I known that the fear was not justified,
I would not have participated in opening this Pandora's box, nor
would Szilard. For my distrust of governments was not limited to
Germany." The photograph shows a postwar reconstruction of the signing.
