Children of activists

When activists are imprisoned or exiled for political or social causes, the people who suffer most are their children. The Rosenberg Fund for Children was started by a son of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, the couple executed in 1953 for passing atomic-bomb secrets to the Soviets. This year, $130,000 will be distributed among 130 children whose parents have lost their livelihood, freedom, or physical well-being in pursuit of ideals. Grants are also awarded to children of refugees who fled their country for political reasons. For information, contact Robert Meerpool, at (413) 739-9020.
