On #ThisDayinHistory 1951, the trial of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg begins in NY. Judge Irving R. Kaufman pre sided over the espionage prosecution of the couple accused of selling nuclear secrets to the Russians: They were charged with espionage because they couldn’t technically be charged with treason because the U.S. was not at war with the Soviet Union #AceHistoryDesk reports

#AceHistoryNews – Mar.06: The Rosenbergs, and co-defendant, Morton Sobell, were defended by the father and son team of Emanuel and Alexander Bloch. The prosecution includes the infamous Roy Cohn, best known for his association with Senator Joseph McCarthy #AceHistoryDesk reports

https://t.me/HistoricalPics/8127 The only direct evidence of the Rosenberg’s involvement was the confession of Julius’ brother-in-law David Greenglass, a machinist at Los Alamos. According to Greenglass, Rosenberg asked him to pass highly confidential instructions on making atomic weapons to the Soviet Union. These materials were transferred to the Russians by Harry Gold, an acquaintance of Greenglass…………It was Gold’s arrest that led to Greenglass’ arrest, which in turn led to the arrest of the Rosenbergs…………..The left-wing community believed that the Rosenbergs were prosecuted because of their membership in the Communist Party, and their case became a national cause………..The trial ended on April 4 with convictions for all the defendants…………The Rosenbergs were sentenced to death, Greenglass got fifteen years for his cooperation. Reportedly, the Rosenbergs were offered a deal in which their death sentences would be commuted in return for an admission of their guilt…………They were executed on June 19, 1953. Both had maintained their innocence to the end. #RosenbergTrial #RedScare #ColdWar #History #USHistory #McCarthyism #RoyCohn #EthelRosenberg #JuliusRosenberg #OTD #AceHistoryNews
