Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, were executed on June 19, 1953 during the anti-communist hysteria of the Cold War Era. They had been convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage, in what was called "the crime of the century." Their convictions were based on perjured testimony and prosecutorial and judicial misconduct, and their executions amounted to judicial murder. 

Talking about this, and the current campaign to exonerate Ethel Rosenberg, will be Robert Meeropol, the Rosenbergs' son. For more, check out the Rosenberg Fund for Children.
