Product Description
This is a 24 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Cold War Era - Julius & Ethel Rosenberg - Cold War Spies. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.

After the Soviets detonated their first atomic bomb in 1949, the U.S. government began an extensive hunt to find out who had provided them with the knowledge to make such a weapon. The U.S. Army's Signal Intelligence Service broke the code used by the Soviets to send messages in the mid-1940s. Some of these decrypted messages revealed that Julius Rosenberg, known by the codename "Liberal," was involved with the Soviets.

David Greenglass, Julius’ brother-in-law, was the first to be caught in this spying case. He then told authorities about Julius Rosenberg's activities. David had initially failed to mention Ethel’s involvement in espionage, later stating that she had participated as well.The Rosenberg’s were brought to trial the following March, and both proclaimed their innocence. By this time, the U.S. military was engaged in the Korean War, and strong anti-communist sentiments were held nationwide.

Julius and Ethel were both convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage, and in early April 1951, the couple was sentenced to death. A series of appeals delayed their execution before being carried out in June 1953. The couple's supporters also requested clemency for the Rosenberg’s from presidents Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower, who both denied to issue a pardon. They are the only Americans executed for spying when the nation was not at war.
