    Descendant of Cesar Franck(?)

    Does anyone here know for sure whether Thomas M Franck, the distinguished international lawyer who died recently was a descendant of Cesar Franck? The second link below says that he was (though it is not very accurate in its musical details) but his Wickipedia entry (third link) says that he came from a Jewish family who were forced to flee Nazi Germany -two statements which can't be reconciled all that easily! However, I think if you trimmed Thomas M's moustache and added some side whiskers there might be a resemblance.

    NB Sorry I can't get the third link to work properly - the closing bracket gets chopped off, so you'll have to add it manually.
