- L’Affaire Dreyfus: son influence dans la création de la France moderne (The Dreyfus Affair in the Making of Modern France)
In 1894, Alfred Dreyfus, a French Jewish officer, is accused of treason and sentenced to life imprisonment. Despite overwhelming evidence of the guilt of another officer, the Army continued to cover up the miscarriage of justice until Dreyfus' release in 1906. The "Dreyfus affair", which became the most prominent political scandal of his time, divided France and revealed the virulent anti-Semitism rife in Europe. With more than 1,000 volumes, the collection contains all the most famous Dreyfusard publications, such as the newspaper article "J'accuse" by Zola in 1898, as well as some rarely seen archival documents. Documents from a wide range of countries bearing witness to all aspects of the controversy reflect the breadth and depth of attention which the Dreyfus Affair attracted at the end of the 19th century.
