The Dreyfus Affair
False arrest. Intrigue. Conspiracy. Undying love. Jewish artillery officer Captain Alfred Dreyfus was wrongfully convicted of treason and sentenced to solitary confinement on Devil’s Island in 1894. In the aftermath, France was torn apart in a seismic political clash between progressive Dreyfusards and right-wing anti-Dreyfusards that pitted friends against friends and neighbors against neighbors. The Dreyfus Affair tells a story of political passions, political will, and unswerving loyalty that resonates to this very day.
