Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Inspirational . . . moving . . . engaging . . . should be required reading."

- Michael Moore

"A riveting and deeply moving human document, filled with the ache and longing of a son bereaved by history."

- Jonathan Kozol

"Heart-wrending, honest memoir . . . Meeropol's captivating memoir deserves a spot on American history bookshelves."

- Publishers Weekly

"Touchingly sincere."

- The New York Times Book Review

"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. Yet, this extraordinary candor does not diminish his anger at the travesty of justice that deprived him of his mother and father. His story is a personal, anguished search for truth, even while it illuminates a tragic moment in the history of our country."

- Howard Zinn

"I was intrigued by this brilliantly honest memoir in which Robert Meeropol describes his struggle to honor his heritage as the son of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg while striving to create his own identity. He writes powerfully of his childhood years of self-muting, his adult years of self-searching. And he writes with a lawyer's acumen on the question of his parents' guilt or innocence of the crime for which they were executed."

- E. L. Doctorow

Synopsis:

An Execution in the Family details Robert Meeropol's political odyssey from Rosenberg son to political activist in his own right, and chronicles a very personal story of self-discovery. It is the story of how he tried to balance a strong desire to live a normal life and raise a family, with a growing need to create something useful out of his nightmare childhood. It is also a poignant account of how, at age forty-three, he finally found a way to honor his parents and also be true to himself.
