Description
In 1913, Mary Phagan, a 13-year-old employee at an Atlanta pencil factory was found murdered. Police suspected Leo Frank, who was a northerner and a Jew. His trial captured national attention. A mob stormed the prison where Frank was being held and lynched him. Leo Frank thus became the only known Jew lynched in American history.

Description
In 1913, thirteen-year-old pencil factory worker Mary Phagan was found murdered at her workplace in Atlanta, Georgia. One targeted suspect was Jewish factory superintendent Leo Frank. All of the inborn prejudice against Jews rose up in a feeling of satisfaction, that here would be a victim worthy to pay for the crime. Though the case was mishandled at every turn, Leo Frank was convicted. But did he commit the crime?
