100 years ago: Dreyfus rehabilitated

Afbeelding van Zola's beroemde pamflet
It's a 100 years ago, but in France it's still a big thing : TheDreyfus Affair. In July 2006, after twelve years of false accusations of betrayal to the Germans, the Jewish captain Alfred Dreyfus (already twice condemned) was rehabilitated by the highest French court. Emile Zola wrote his famous words "J'accuse" to support Dreyfus.
France 2 Broadcasting has a dossier on the affair, saying the false accusations against Dreyfus were no judicial errors: ,,They were judicial crimes.''
The Paris based Museum of Jewish Art and History made an
exhibition, loaded with original documents. It shows the Dreyfus case as an example of the difficult integration of Jews in France.
By the way: the house in Medan, where Zola wrote "J'accuse" and many other works, may be visted. Next to it, a Zola museum will be build shortly.
