An Excerpt from “Exoneration” by Emily Arnow Alman and David Alman
In 1951, Emily and David Alman co-founded along with William A. Reuben, The National Committee to Secure Justice in the Rosenberg Case (later renamed the National Committee to Reopen the Rosenberg Case). For eighteen months the two, Emily and Dave, neighbors of the Rosenbergs in New York City’s Knickerbocker Village housing development, led a vigorous — but ultimately unsuccessful — effort to save the Rosenbergs’ lives. Decades later, they turned their attention to exoneration. Six years after Emily’s death, their book was published by Green Elms Press. Here is the first chapter, which describes how the Alman’s became involved in the case and how they got the committee off the ground. Click here to read the book’s first chapter.
