McCarthy Era Lessons for Bush’s America- presented June 18th and June 19th
Robert Meeropol was six years old when his 
parents, Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, were sent to 
the electric chair in 1953, executed by the U.S. 
government after one of the most hotly debated 
trials in U.S. history.  Now, Meeropol leads the 
Rosenberg Fund for Children, 
<http://www.rfc.org/>www.rfc.org, a public 
foundation he started in 1990. The RFC echoes the 
support Meeropol received from the progressive 
community after his parents’ deaths, by aiding 
children of today’s activists who are living 
through similar nightmares to that which he experienced as a child.

In these presentations, followed by Q&A and book 
signings, Meeropol - now an NLG attorney, 
activist and Executive Director of the RFC- will 
discuss the many dangerous parallels between the 
post-9/11 political climate and the McCarthy era of the 1950’s.
