Alfred_Dreyfus_(1859-1935)

The Dreyfus Affair: A Lesson for Our Time

| 12:00 PM - 01:00 PM

Presentation by Joseph Gal, PhD, about French Jewish army captain Alfred Dreyfus, who was falsely accused of providing military secrets to Germany in 1894.  He was convicted of high treason and sentenced to life in prison on Devil's Island off the South American coast.  The conviction was overturned by the President of France and in 1906 a high court exonerated Dreyfus. The case is a grave warning about the consequences of racism and antisemitism, still present today.  Download flyer.  RSVP Today>>
