Dreyfus Asks Publication of Documents in His Case

Download PDF for this date

Captain Alfred Dreyfus, the Jewish officer in the French army who was the central figure in the famous Dreyfus Affair two generations ago, on his recent visit here to Bruno Weil, author of a book on the Dreyfus Affair, declared that he had demanded the publication of all the documents in his case by the French Foreign Office but the government had given him an unsatisfactory reply.

M. Weil said today that the French League for Human Rights is bringing the matter to the attention of the French Parliament. M. Weil describes Captain Dreyfus as a friendly old officer, optimistic and with no signs of bitterness. Madame Dreyfus, he says, is supporting 350 indigent families.
