After fourteen-year-old Mary Phagan is found murdered in the basement of the National Pencil Factory in Atlanta, Georgia and Jewish factory superintendent Leo Frank is arrested, convicted (in a trial thought by many to be influenced by Anti-Semitic convictions), and lynched for the crime despite his doubtful guilt, B’nai B’rith creates the Anti-Defamation League. Established mainly to combat anti-Semitism, the League also fights against general racism and discrimination.
