The Brother Who Sent the Rosenbergs to the Electric Chair

In July 1950 Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, both American citizens, were arrested by the FBI for delivering vital information on the US nuclear program to the Soviet Union. They both insisted that they were innocent, went on trial, were condemned and executed on June 19th 1953. The American public was split in half over the case and world opinion was outraged. The Rosenbergs left two children, Robert and Michael Rosenberg, aged 6 and 10. Ethel's brother David was arrested in June 1950 and got a 15 year sentence. His wife Ruth Greenglass got off completely unscathed. From: http://www.wichitafilms.com/en/documentary-06.php
