Abstract:

In 1950 the Cold War was escalating dramatically. The House Un-American Activities Committee hearings were in full swing. The Soviet Union had tested its first atomic bomb and anti-communist hysteria was sweeping the nation. On July 17, Julius Rosenberg, partner in a small machine shop on New York's lower east side, was arrested on charges of having recruited his brother-in-law, David Greenglass, into a Soviet spy ring. On August 11, Ethel Rosenberg was arrested on charges of conspiracy to commit espionage. After a fourteen-day trial in which they denied the espionage charges and refused to discuss their political affiliations, the Rosenbergs were convicted and sentenced to death. They died in the electric chair on June 19, 1953.

The Rosenbergs spent three years in the death house at Sing Sing Prison. During that time, they conducted voluminous correspondence with one another, with their children (aged 7 and 3 at the time of the arrests), and with their attorney. Previous publication of these letters had been partial, fragmentary, of limited circulation, and frequently distorted.
