Historic Jewish Atlanta: The Leo Frank Case

Experience History at its Source!

Join Historic Jewish Atlanta Tours at the Marietta Museum of History for a special lecture on the Leo Frank case by legal expert Van Pearlberg.

About Van Pearlberg: Deputy Attorney General and former Marietta City Councilman Van Pearlberg is one of the foremost experts on the Frank case.

"This 1913 murder of 13-year old Mary Phagan at the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta, Georgia set the stage for an ambitious prosecutor; the question as to credibility vs. believably of witnesses; the resurrection of the KKK; the election of a Senator; the downfall of a Governor; the fate of a "Yankee Jew"; and a lifelong secret to be kept by a 14-year old boy until his 80's. This lecture chronicles the events from the arrest of Leo M. Frank to his lynching in Marietta, Georgia in 1915."

    Bearing Witness: Murray Lynn (Hungary)

    Murray Lynn was only 14 years old when he, his mother and three brothers were sent by cattle train to Auschwitz-Birkenau. His mother and brothers were murdered upon their arrival, but Murray survived despite unbearable conditions, and a death march that lasted many weeks. As an orphaned teenager, he was sent to England, Ireland and ultimately America, where he began a new life.
