Abstract:

Julius and Ethel Rosenberg are Cold War iconic symbols and their trial and execution embody the hysteria fueled by the McCarthy's red scare. But who were the Rosenberg's as people? Listen to staunch Rosenberg comrades and hear the intimate interviews with the filmmaker's father, Michael Meeropol, who brings an immediacy to his parents' story. This painful revelation eerily underscores the depth of political paranoia of the time and the impossibility of discovering the ultimate truth about the Rosenberg's guilt or innocence.
