Synopis: The Morgn-Freiheit applauds yesterday's editorial in the Tog and article in the Forverts, and joins those papers in calling for President Truman to commute the Rosenberg death sentence. Among other arguments, points out that "Axis Sally" and "Tokyo Rose" and Ezra Pound, and others who aided Fascists during wartime did not receive the death penalty. The Freiheit takes the other papers to task for ignoring anti-semitism as the root cause of the Rosenberg case and its disproportionate punishment. The Rosenbergs were sentenced to death on April 5, 1951 and executed on June 19, 1953.
Date range based on public appeals being made to then President Truman. The Jewish People’s Fraternal Order was the largest ‘national’ section of the International Workers Order (IWO) which focused on cultural awareness and celebration, mutual support especially in health insurance coverage, and anti-fascist activities. The IWO also gave particular emphasis to supporting the rights and interests of African Americans.
