Transcript The Untold OPPENHEIMER STORY By PAUL CROUCH Recognizing a Life magazine cover photo of Dr. J. Roberl Oppenheimer, Paul Crouch realised that tin- V-bomb expert was the '*ven famous scientist" he had firsl mel al a Communist party meeting in California and previously known only as Professor Z. Even more positive identification was marie after Crouch and his wife Sylvia -an Oppenheimer in a March of "time film. Uded by the FRI. Crouch sought to identify the house where he had firsl mel Oppen- heajuer in [941, where the ne* Communist party lint- was unreeled to special Red section unit-. Crouch says, "\n agent "I' the FBI gave me a great surprise. He told me that tin- house had been occupied at the time ni the I9H meeting... by Or. J. Robert Oppenheimer and his wife ECatfaerine." Part III After the discovery that the 1941 special section meeting had been held in a house occupied by Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer. Mr. Combs and I gave greater attention to the backgrounds ol ihe scientist and his wife, and lo his associations with people like Sieve Nelson and Dr. Joseph Weinberg. Both men already had been identified in House Commiltce reports as having been actively engaged in atomic espionage for lhe Soviet Lnion. We learned lhal Dr. Oppenheimer's associations with the Communists had continued long after the meeting al his home in the summer of 1911. During Ihe war years, when Dr. Oppenheimer was in charge of atomic bomb research. he had repeatedly entertained Steve Nelson in his home. It must be remembered lhal Nelson was one of lhe leading Keds in the United Slates, trained in Moscow's espionage schools, and had been a lieutenant colonel in lhe Communist army in Spain during the civil war there. Here was the man in charge of making the atomic bomb, entertaining one of the leading agents in charge of stealing the secrets of that bomb for the Soviet Union! And Dr. Oppenheimer knew the facts about Nelson's background and his position at that moment as a leading official in the Red apparatus. It was like a bank president entertaining a known bank robber in his home. ttf found lhal Dr. Oppenheimer had many radical associates in New York before he anil his brother Frank moved lo California. One was Arthur Kallel. head of Consumers I nion. the Communist /roni that Walter 1/. Trumbull had helped lo set tip. This important Communist-controlled organization was in its infancy when Dr. Oppenheimer came lo the West Coast. From the time of his arrival he was the outstanding leader in California for lhe lied front. The committee file- contained evidence (firsl made public al lhe 1951 AEC bearings.) lhal Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer heul attended a Communisl meeting in his hrolhcr's home. I know of evidence of other meetings, even more importanl. lhal has nol yel been made available lo lhe public. One of the most serious links in lln chain wet- the large number of Commute i.-t- who had been employed for work on development of lhe atomic bomb under Dr. Oppenheimer. One' wees Lloyd Lehman, one of lhe leading Commu- nists in the county, who i< known In have been associated with Dr. Oppenheimer as early eis 1910. After his con- nee linn- with development of the homh. Lehman became lhe open and official Communisl organizer for Alameda County -the' position I had held in 1911 and Sieve Nelson in 1912-1 i. \mong those who have been idenlified as Communal- who worked on lhe homh were Dr. Joseph Weinberg, Dr. Bernard Peters, Professor Deivid Hawkins, Dr. Frank Oppenheimer, David llohm. Irving David Fox, Giovanni Rossi Loma- nitz. Max Bernard Friedman and Roberl ll. Detvis. as well ei- many other- who could he named. In lhe East, Professor Clarence His key. who belonged to the' Communisl party in Tennessee when I weis ihe State Organizer there, was one of those employed in development of the atomic homh. Of those named, only Roberl Dav i- hei- given whal I regard as the only real evidence of et l.reeik with communism — full and open testimony ami direct answers to all questions aboul his fornier membership and all of his associates. Looking at Dr. Oppenheimer's postwar record, we found that he had done every thing possible to lead the American people into the false and fatal belief that the bomb was an American monopoly. He also tried to put across the absurd theory that even "if" the Russians had the know-how, they could never make the bomb. The San Francisco Chronicle of February 8. 1917. heul quoted Dr. Oppenheimer eis saying "... real atom bomb 'secrel" i- sale . . . yel il is my opinion that even if we threw the hooks wide open and showed the- Russians, for instance, eill the facts and figures we have. ii would onlv confuse them." Could anyone as intelligent and well informed eis Dr. .1. Roberl Oppenheimer he thai stupid and naive? Could one who had spent years in close assneiei- lion wilh traitors like Steve Nelson, William Schneiderman and others make such a colossal mistake in underestimating the Soviet governmenl and world communism? One musl he charitable indeed, wilh unbounded faith in human beings, lo he able to give "yes" answer- to such questions. When we turned from lhe background of Dr. Oppenheimer lo that of his wife (Catherine, we' found almost ;1 blank page. Little weis known about her. Congressional reports had made mention of the lad that a former husband had been killed while serving in the Communist "Abraham Lincoln" Brigade "' Spain, ami that after his death in action Sieve' Ncl-iiu. ei lieiilenel 111 eailieni'l in th'1 Red forces, had "befriended" her. Also- the reports indicated thai after her marriage in Dr. Oppenheimer she heul introduced Steve Nelson to him. But all reports avoided mention of the name ol lhe former husband who had been killed in Spain. Reference hooks made mention ol Dr. Oppenheimer's marriage lo Kitlherii"' Harrison in November, 191(1. There wee- no published inference lhal she ha° been married more than once before -h1' (Continued mi Page 2ol —United Press rto<° Paul Crouch and his wife Sylvia Page 16 FACTS FORUM NEWS, June, t>!"
