Fifty years ago Thursday, Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were executed for selling America's nuclear weapons secrets to the Soviet Union. In his new book, An Execution in the Family, the Rosenbergs' son, Robert Meeropol, revisits the much-debated case against his parents. NPR's Michele Norris talks with Meeropol.
