Atomic Bomb Attack - Our Cities Must Fight

In 1951, the U.S. government commissioned a movie which explains the dangers of atomic warfare and its aftermath. Urging American citizens not to evacuate their cities and towns, in the event of attack, the script includes such lines as: “Staying in a city after an atomic attack is not as dangerous as people think.”

Watch actor-journalists discuss that "it is pretty close to treason" to evacuate one's home and town, in the event of a nuclear attack.
