Editorial Reviews

"the execution of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg is a blot on the justice of the United States. I wish very much that we could clear their names."
- Dr. Harold C. Urey

"High crimes can be committed in the highest offices ... Justice demands that all ...evidence relating to the Rosenberg Case be made available..."
- Rep. Bella S. Abzug (Dem) NY

December 2001
David Greenglass, chief prosecution witness, released in 1968 after serving 15 years in prison, & living under the witness protection program, admitted during a TV interview that he had been pressured by Prosecutor Roy Cohn, former aide to Sen. Joseph McCarthy, to lie during the trial.

The Rosenberg "Atomic Espionage" Case, among the most controversial Cold War episodes of
the early 1950s, despite the passage of decades, continues to raise serious doubts as to:
The reliability of the testimony?
The Judge's relationship with FBI Director Hoover & the prosecution?
The legality of the sentence?
The rush to electrocute the only Americans ever executed for espionage?
CAN THE ROSENBERG CASE BE REOPENED? begins with a historical review narrated by actors Sally Kemp & Paul Jenkins; followed by the February 2, 1975 Santa Monica Civic Auditorium rally during which Henry Fonda, Lee Grant, Roscoe Lee Brown, Martin Sheen & other Hollywood Stars & 2,500 spectators, were tear gassed, allegedly by US Nazis. Robert Carl Cohen then interviews Robert Meeropol, one of the Rosenberg's two sons, & civil rights attorneys Ben Margolis & Luke McKissack about reopening the case. They discuss the complex issues involved & the efforts to force the FBI to unseal their files; which remain secret despite the end of the Cold War & the development of nuclear weapons by many nations.
Why do the FBI files remain sealed? Could their contents exonerate the Rosenbergs?
Is there any legal precedent for reopening a case years after the defendants are dead?
Could the Rosenberg's sons or grandchildren sue for civil damages?
Could Congress, shown evidence of innocence, rehabilitate the Rosenbergs posthumously?

AUDIENCE: Concerned Citizens & Students of History, Law, Physics, Communism, Psychology, Sociology, Political Science
