The Captain Dreyfus case as a symbol of anti-Semitism in France at the turn of the 19th - 20th centuries

The Captain Dreyfus case is a trial that took place in France at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries. It became one of the most notorious political scandals of the era, directly related to the high level of anti-Semitic sentiment within French society.

Captain Alfred Dreyfus was an officer of the French General Staff. Moreover, he was of Jewish origin. It is worth noting that in those days it was unprecedented for a Jew to occupy such a high position. However, they could not not appoint Dreyfus to it due to his outstanding abilities and education.



Probably, spiteful critics at the General Staff decided to get rid of the hated captain differently. In July 1894, Dreyfus was arrested on suspicion of spying for Germany by passing military secrets to the German attaché in Paris.

Ultimately, the captain was accused on the basis of French documents allegedly found on him, translated into German.

In reality, everything was fabricated by high-ranking army officers, and they were interested in shutting it down as quickly as possible. As a result, in January 1895, Dreyfus was sentenced to life imprisonment and sent to hard labor.

However, already in 1896, new evidence was discovered indicating that Dreyfus was innocent, and in 1899 his case was reviewed. As a result of the investigation, it was revealed that the real traitor was the French major Ferdinand Esterhazy.

In 1906, Dreyfus was officially rehabilitated and restored to his rank. In turn, Esterhazy committed suicide after his true role in the scandalous case became known.

The Captain Dreyfus case became a symbol of anti-Semitism and injustice in France and directly affected the political and social situation in the country. It also brought public attention to the issue of human rights and justice.

    Pure lie. For the world, Zionist circles did everything possible to justify Dreyfus. But you can’t remove the words from the song.

      And now they are doing everything possible to get maximum benefit from this case, just like from the Holocaust

    Menachim Beilis was not an officer, but his trial split society in the same way.

    The Dreyfus affair also convinced the German command that the French army was a colossus with feet of clay and that it would be easy to defeat, just like last time.

    "Esterházy committed suicide after his true role in the scandalous case became known" ... didn't he die much later, in 1923?

    The Jew Fuger sponsored the election of the Holy Roman Emperor of the German nation
    The Quandts and others sponsored Hitler
    The Rothschilds destroyed the USSR and brought Mikron to power and the Rockefellers brought the deep state of the USA
    And all the blows go to people like Dreyfus or someone lower.

          These are the Rothschild Jews. They are often confused. In general, Jews themselves love to cling to all famous personalities. In the USSR, they told everyone that Charlie Chaplin was supposedly Jewish. Since there was no Internet, and no one would go specifically to libraries to check, people believed.

    Personally, I am absolutely convinced that Dreyfus was in fact guilty! And the proof of this is precisely the hype around him, which has survived centuries. It would seem that some officer was falsely accused (let’s say). But you never know how many such cases happened then (and always) in all countries around the world - it’s a small matter. But why did it receive such a resonance that even many public figures from all over the world joined Dreyfus? Were they familiar with the case? Yes, that’s the point: Dreyfus is a Jew! Exactly the same public fury as in the Beilis case or the George Floyd case. Jews, in their thirst to impress upon the whole world their exclusivity, quite often get into trouble and/or end up in a puddle.

      You are right, but Jews think differently, look at our disadvantages.

      It is not at all necessary that he was guilty of what he was accused of. And even if there was, the “public figures” still didn’t know it. They entered behind him purely because of their nationality. The Dreyfus trial showed something completely different: it is impossible to appoint foreigners with an aggressive “diaspora” who are ready to fight for “their own” to high and responsible positions without understanding whether they are right or wrong.
      Rhetorical question: is there at least one goy on the General Staff of the Israeli Army?

    Esterhazy committed suicide after his true role in the scandalous case became known.

    No. Suicide would be too decent a step for such, to put it mildly, a dishonest individual. He was quietly retired with a major's pension. Since he was used to living in grand style, his pension was not enough, and he supplemented his income with articles in anti-Semitic publications. He died in 1923 at the age of 75, a very long life expectancy for that time.

    Hence the moral: never appoint Jews to high or responsible positions, since it will no longer be possible to fire them without a worldwide scandal.

      And in general, it’s high time for all Jews to be given a ticket to Tel Aviv.

        If Russia is governed and Jews are responsible for the history of Russia, and Russians do not even notice their guilt in this, it is more likely that Jews will give Russians a ticket to Paradise, and they fly to Tel Aviv every week on weekends. .....

    they wrote something (Rothschilds, Jews, the Holocaust and other things that follow the template. It’s strange that they did without the Freemasons). There is a version voiced by citizen Bushkov that the Dreyfus affair was fabricated in order to divert the attention of French citizens from the mega-waste of money during the construction of the Panama Canal. A lot of minted coins were stolen there.
