Download PDF for this date

The complete innocence of the French Jewish army captain Alfred Dreyfus is established in state documents just made public by German diplomatic authorities/

Count Muenster, the then German Ambassador to Paris had reported to his Government at Berlin that the embassy and military attache Schwartzkoppen were convinced the accusations against Dreyfus, who was not known by the authorities, were unfounded, the papers unearthed from the archives where they lay hidden for thirty years, now reveal.

Surprise is expressed in various circles that Germany had bee silent all these years, particularly at the time when the publication of these papers might have favorably effected the famous Dreyfus case.
