Decades of secrecy surrounding the Rocky Flats nuclear-weapons plant have been given human voice through 90 interviews collected and posted online this spring by the Rocky Flats Cold War Museum board.
The presentation, “The Fragmented Stories of Rocky Flats,” gathered oral histories from Rocky Flats workers, government officials, political leaders and others involved with the plant south of Boulder, which produced tens of thousands of nuclear-bomb parts in the decades spanning the Cold War.
The interviews were collected in collaboration with the Maria Rogers Oral History Program at Boulder’s Carnegie Library for Local History.
