PRESS

Adviser to THE PEOPLE V. LEO FRANK and author of “And The Dead Shall Rise,” Steve Oney was a lecturer at the 3-day conference “Persecution Through Prosecution: Alfred Dreyfus, Leo Frank and the Infernal Machine” in Paris, which ran July 5-7th. The conference was hosted by Touro Law and co-sponsored by the American Jewish Committee (AJC), the Representative Council of French Jewish Institutions (CRIF) and SciencesPo.

“It’s fascinating history well presented, but that’s only part of what makes this film linger in the mind. The biases and divisions brought to the surface by the Frank case are still easy to find today. So are people who specialize in fear-mongering and fanning small fires into big ones.”

“The Frank saga says as much about current events as it does about history.”

“Frank was an ordinary man most distinguished for his outsider status. For that, he was savaged. As Loeterman’s film documents painfully, the scars still haven’t healed.”

“No double murder has altered the nation’s cultural landscape quite like this one. The killings of Mary Phagan and Leo Frank stirred latent antisemitism, racism, sectionalism and bigotry that festered below the Mason-Dixon Line before exploding nationwide, leaving shockwaves still felt today.”
