ABSTRACT
This article presents information on the book "And the Dead Shall Rise," by Steve Oney. The lynching of revolutionary Leo Frank in 1915 horrified the U.S. and led to the formation of the Anti-Defamation League. A 17-year quest by Oney to find out what really happened has turned into the definitive book on an incident that changed Atlanta, Georgia forever. There is nothing to mark the final resting place for the widow of Frank, whose husband's lynching in 1915 is considered the single greatest instance of anti-Semite violence in American history. Until Oney discovered it, only one or two people even knew where Frank's grave was located. That is but one of many revelations uncovered by Oney during the 17 years he spent researching the murders of Leo Prank and Mary Phagan, the 13-year-old girl whom Frank was convicted of killing. Due to be released October 7, 2003 by Pantheon Books, it is the definitive book on the Frank case and certain to stir up the ghosts of an incident that still haunts today.
