A square in the heart of Paris was named for Zionist founder Theodor Herzl. A corner in Paris’ Third District was dedicated this week to Herzl, who became a Zionist while covering the 1896 trial of Alfred Dreyfus, a captain in the French military wrongly jailed on charges of spying for the German army. The naming of the square comes as a series of events and museum exhibits in Paris commemorate Dreyfus, who was released from prison and given back his rank and pay 100 years ago.
