Members of the ADL current Glass Leadership Institute (GLI), S/GLI Alumni and their spouses/significant others attended a special reception and viewing of the Dallas Holocaust Museum’s Seeking Justice: The Leo Frank Case Revisited. The exhibit revisits the murder case and trial that ultimately captured the attention of the nation and led to the lynching of Leo Frank in Marietta, GA, in the early 1900s.
If there were doubts about the need for an ADL, that evaporated among significant parts of the community after the lynching. And it set the stage for the fundamental practice used by ADL and others in combating anti-Semitism: Get the information out and rely on the good will of public figures and institutions to delegitimize hate and prejudice.
ADL is grateful to the Dallas Holocaust Museum staff and leadership for bringing this important exhibit to the community and for their generous hospitality in hosting a special program for ADL’s young leaders.
The 2013-2014 GLI class is Co-Chaired by Melissa Duchin and Sam Johnson; the S/GLI Alumni group is Co-Chaired by Caryn Berardi and Duncan Gilman. All four Co-Chairs are GLI graduates.
