Dreyfus : A Family Affair, 1789-1945
A riveting saga of six generations of a French Jewish family, from the French Revolution to the Vichy regime of WWII, but dramatically centered on the notorious Dreyfus affair of the late 1890s. Burns shows how the Dreyfus case helped shape the political landscape of 20th-century France, how it resonated beyond French borders, and how anti-Semitism assumed its modern form in the crucible of the affair.
