Several documents related to the Rosenberg Case can be downloaded by clicking on the documents listed under Related Files below.
In addition to these documents, the previously-secret Rosenberg Grand Jury transcripts (released September 11, 2008) are accessible on the National Security Archives’ (NSA) website at: http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/20080911/index.htm. Scroll down that page to the bottom to see links to the transcripts of witness testimony.
The material is broken down into a series of .pdf files, chronologically spanning August 1950-March 1951 and encompassing 930 pages.For most viewers, these .pdf files are too large to open within their internet browsers: following the links to these files will cause most browsers to “hang up” or stall. What is recommended instead is for users to download (save) the .pdf files to their own computers and then open and/or print those files from their own computers, rather than trying to follow the links for the files and view them on the NSA website.
To download or save a file, in most browsers, users should RIGHT CLICK on the link for the file, then choose the “save as,“ “save link as,” download” or other similar option from the menu that pops up after right-clicking. Next a dialogue box will open and users can either click “OK” to save the files with the default name, and in the default location provided, or users can change the file name or the “save” location as they wish. After clicking “OK” in that dialogue box, the file will download onto users computers. Users may then locate the file on their own computers, open it using the Adobe Reader (a program which may be downloaded for free), and print the file if desired.
To obtain the entire transcript, all files must be downloaded one at a time, following the procedure above. One other note about the list of files: The first month of testimony, August 1950, can be downloaded in its entirety as one, very large file (30.5 MB), or can be downloaded as 4 separate files that each span one week. The files are clearly labeled by date on the NSA website. It would be redundant to download both the full August 1950 file and the 4 files for the 4 weeks of August 1950.
