About Robert Meeropol
Robert Meeropol is the younger son of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, and founder and Executive Director of the Rosenberg Fund for Children. He is an activist, attorney, writer and public speaker. Through the RFC, Robert has assisted hundreds of children whose parents also have been attacked for their social activism.
Robert is also the author of AN EXECUTION IN THE FAMILY: One Son's Journey. This political memoir chronicles his journey from childhood victim of McCarthy-era repression; to 1960's militant activist; to politically engaged parent and law student; to founder and leader of the RFC. Michael Moore declared AN EXECUTION IN THE FAMILY is, "Inspirational . . . moving . . . engaging . . . should be required reading." And Howard Zinn said, "What is compelling about Robert Meeropol's poignant memoir is his utter honesty in examining the question of whether his parents were guilty of espionage…His story is a personal, anguished search for truth, even while it illuminates a tragic moment in the history of our country."
Each year Robert Meeropol shares his powerful message with audiences at dozens of universities, community centers, literary festivals and other venues across the country. All speaking fees are donated to the Rosenberg Fund for Children, a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation.
