An Execution in the Family: One Son's Journey by Robert Meeropol

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.

Being about the same age as the author and remembering my child hood fears from my limited knowledge of the tragic event I was hoping this book would shed some light on what really happened and to understand how it could not happen again. Unfortunately my fears have only been reinforced and the altruistic excuses from both sides ring hollow.
