Ethel and Julius Rosenberg

Watch Ethel Rosenberg’s sons on 60 Minutes this Sunday!

This Sunday, July 23rd, at 7:00 pm60 Minutes is expected to air a story examining the case of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. I think you’ll want to see this!

The Rosenbergs were young parents and left-wing activists who were convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage and executed by the U.S. government in 1953, at the height of the McCarthy Era. They were accused of giving “the secret of the Atomic Bomb” to the Soviet Union.

60 Minutes filmed the segment in the wake of the groundbreaking evidence showing Ethel was not a spy and her execution was wrongful, which launched the nationwide campaign asking President Obama to exonerate Ethel. The report features interviews with Rosenberg sons Robert and Michael Meeropol and others. It explores the Rosenbergs’ controversial trial and execution for the so-called “crime of the century.”

If you’re unable to watch live, the segment will be available on the 60 Minutes website for several weeks following the broadcast.

I hope you’ll tune in.
