I’m excited to let you know that we anticipate that this Sunday, July 23rd, 60 Minutes will rebroadcast their groundbreaking story examining the controversial trial and executions of my grandparents, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. It will air at 7:00 pm ET/PT on CBS.
The report features interviews with my father Robert and my uncle Michael, who were six and 10 years old when their parents were killed. It also highlights the evidence showing Ethel was not a spy and her execution was wrongful, which led to our nationwide campaign last year asking President Obama to exonerate my grandmother.
If you’re unable to watch live, the segment will be available on the 60 Minutes website for several weeks after the broadcast.
Please tune in, and invite your friends to do so as well! An email you can share is below.
Subj: Watch Ethel Rosenberg’s sons on 60 Minutes this Sunday!
This Sunday, July 23rd, at 7:00 pm, 60 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.
