Download PDF for this date

The Paris City Council has opened an exhibition at the Carnavalet Museum consisting of about 17,000 documents, newspapers, books, photographs, drawings, etc., relating to the Dreyfus affair. The collection was bequeathed to the City by M. Ochs, a Paris Jew who died recently. The collection was utilised during M. Och’s lifetime by a number of writers interested in the Dreyfus affair, including M. Jacques Richepin, who wrote the Dreyfus affair play which was produced in Paris recently, and Dr. Bruno Well, one of the leaders of the Central Union of German Citizens of the Jewish Faith, who recently published an important book on the Dreyfus case.
