This Sunday, October 16th, at 7:00 pm, 60 Minutes will air a story examining the case of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg.
We 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.
Filmed in the wake of groundbreaking new evidence indicating Ethel was not a spy and her execution was wrongful, 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 posted on the 60 Minutes website shortly after broadcast, where you can watch it at your convenience.
Sunday, Oct 16
7pm(or after football) on CBS
We hope you’ll tune in!
