Article

The Dreyfus Affair was a French political controversy resulting from the unjust conviction and imprisonment of Captain Alfred Dreyfus (1859–1935), a Jewish artillery officer, for alleged espionage. By 1899, the ‘Affair’ had polarized France between ‘Dreyfusards’ and ‘anti-Dreyfusards’, pointing to profound divisions between traditionalist and modernizing forces.
