One Hundred Years Ago Today
Leo Frank at his trial.
The trial of Leo Frank began on July 28, 1913, in Atlanta. The trial went on into August.
Frank’s trial was one of the most disgraceful episodes in the annals of American jurisprudence.
In the year after Frank’s conviction and murder, one-half of Georgia’s citizens of Jewish faith left the state permanently.
