“The fact that our United States government, in 1953, knowing that Ethel Rosenberg was innocent of the charge of espionage against her, allowed her execution to take place, smacks of the kind of Fascistic hysteria that, alas, once more, threatens our nation.  Especially now, with the generating of hatred and fear severely afflicting our nation, we must stand together and say, “No. This is not who we are! We, our country, perpetrated a terrible injustice in 1953 and, knowing that, we must not hide from this truth. We shall rise to the occasion and exonerate Ethel Rosenberg! Doing so is what a great nation does. Failure to do so adds to a legacy of denial that will continue to corrode our nation’s honor.” - Peter Yarrow (Peter, Paul & Mary)
