“Ayude a impedir este crimen. Dos norteamericanos han sido sentenciados a morir en la silla eléctrica el 12 de enero. Ethel y Julio Rosenberg…”, 1953.

Translation:
Help to prevent this crime. Two North Americans have been sentenced to die in the electric chair on January 12 – Ethel and Julius Rosenberg – the parents of two children

Reference:
“A protest poster about the pending execution of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg. The image shows the couple, who are depicted strapped into electric chairs. In the fore- ground a hand with a dollar sign cufflink (US imperialism) reaches for the switch while the hand of the proletariat reaches in to stop the execution. A very powerful and successful image” -Prignitz-Poda, Helga. El Taller de Gráfica Popular en México 1937-1977. Mexico: Instituto Nacional de Bellas Artes, 1992, p. 324:
