Is there any evidence for this?
I believe there is, although I'm no expert in the subject. There is the (conflicting) testimony of Bohr, Heisenberg and Bohr's own archives. Perhaps
more credible, if oblique and open to interpretation, are the transcripts of the wiretaps at Farm Hall, near Cambridge, where scientists working on
the Nazi programme were held until after the war. Their reactions to the news from Hiroshima are particularly telling.
The playwright Michael Frayn, has researched the subject extensively, and discussed the matter in the long afterword to his play Copenhagen
whose subject is Heisenberg's own actions vis-à-vis
the Nazi programme, and the degree to which these were influenced (or manipulated) by
Bohr. You may find it interesting to read or watch the play.
