The Story of Leo Frank, with Margret Krakauer

Hosted By: Temple Emanu-El, Haverhill MA

In 1913, Leo Frank, a Jewish factory superintendent in Atlanta, was tried and convicted of murdering a thirteen-year-old employee. His trial and subsequent lynching attracted national attention. Join Leo Frank’s great-niece, Margret Krakauer, as we try to unravel this important case, which led to the formation of the Anti-Defamation League and the reemergence of the KKK. It also had repercussions on Leo’s extended family that persisted for generations.
