We offer: guided class visits; pre- and post-visit curriculum materials; a Holocaust Survivor Speakers Bureau; library resources, including ready-to-use lesson plan packs and videos; and professional development workshops for educators and lifelong learners. All our programs meet Georgia Quality Core Curriculum Standards (QCCS).

Exhibition catalogue for Seeking Justice: The Leo Frank Case Revisited

Thirteen-year-old Mary Phagan was found brutally murdered at the National Pencil Company, where she was employed. Leo Frank, the Jewish factory superintendent, was arrested, tried, convicted and sentenced to death. Georgia’s governor commuted Frank’s sentence to life in prison, but Frank, kidnapped from his cell, was lynched by a mob of prominent citizens.

Ironically, the case ignited a fervor that led to both the rebirth of the Ku Klux Klan and the reaffirmation of the mission of the Anti-Defamation League.This case was the driving force behind a number of Supreme Court rulings that redefined due process, and it sparked decades of debate over Frank’s innocence.

The catalogue features an introduction by Eli N. Evans; "A Model of the New South," by Andy Ambrose; "Lynching," by Clifford Kuhn; "The Press & the Frank Case by Steve Oney; "Screening a Lynching: The Leo Frank Case on Film & TV," by Dr. Matthew H. Bernstein; "The Frank Case & the Law," by Leonard Dinnerstein; and complete images and text from the exhibition by Sandra Berman & Jane Leavey.
