Caption: Klaus Emil Julius Fuchs (1911-1988), German nuclear physicist who was convicted in 1950 of passing UK and US atom bomb secrets to the USSR. Fuchs had fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s and settled in the UK. During World War II, he worked on both the UK atom bomb project and the Manhattan Project in the USA, carrying out key theoretical calculations. Following his conviction, he was sentenced to 14 years in prison and stripped of his UK citizenship. He was released in 1959, and settled in Dresden, East Germany, where he resumed his work in nuclear research. This photograph was taken at some point before 1951.
