You do realize the case was rank with prosecutorial misconduct. We don't have any laws making communism a capital offense.

re: Are the Rosenberg executions the biggest miscarriage of justice in post WW2 US


Hmm. Julius was guilty. Arguably the sentence was disproportionate given the lack of other executions for espionage in that era, although he gave away the biggest secret of the 20th century, so it's hard to claim it was excessive.

Ethel was probably not involved in the espionage, although she probably knew and approved of of what her husband was doing. They tried to use her as leverage to get Julius to cooperate, and it didn't work. She wouldn't sell him out and he wouldn't plead guilty to save her. They probably figured they'd go down as martyrs for the cause, and a few did look at them that way, but not many.

The biggest lie of all, in fact another man tried in the same case actually gave secrets to the Russians that took American lives and he was out in like 10 years. Julius gave them nothing of importance. (though not from a lack of trying)

Poor Ethel, she got screwed and so did her children.

The Soviet files say they were both spies. In fact, one document released after the USSR breakup noted that 'They are giving us too much information. They need to prioritize.'

They say Julius was a spy and how inconsequential his information was.
