On the trail of Klaus Fuchs, atomic spy

September 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

£5

Arguably the most important ‘atomic’ spy of the 20th century, Klaus Fuchs was a German physicist who worked on the British and US-led atomic projects of the Cold War era. In 1950, Fuchs was caught passing vital secrets to the Soviet Union and sentenced to 14 years imprisonment. Our exhibition curator Mark Dunton delves into Security Service files in our collection to uncover how the authorities managed to unmask Fuchs and secure his confession, and reveals a fascinating local connection with Kew.

Friends of The National Archive receive a 20% discount on their ticket.
