Leo Frank exhibition extended through next year

The exhibition “Seeking Justice: The Leo Frank Case Revisited” has been extended through winter 2017 at the Museum of Jewish Heritage -— A Living Memorial to the Holocaust, at 36 Battery Place in Manhattan.

“Seeking Justice” recounts the momentous and tragic events surrounding the 1913 murder of 13-year-old Mary Phagan, a white Christian girl, and the lynching of Leo Frank two years later, events that have been remembered and debated for more than a century. Without drawing conclusions about Frank’s guilt or innocence, “Seeking Justice” invites visitors to explore the fascinating evidence surrounding Phagan’s murder and Frank’s arrest, trial, conviction, and lynching by prominent citizens of Marietta, Georgia.

The exhibition was created by the William Breman Jewish Heritage Museum in Atlanta.
