Margery Elfin’s “Dreyfus Affair” book talk
October 30, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose. When France tried the Jewish army officer Alfred Dreyfus for treason, the media spotlight put the entire nation on trial. And in the century since, change has remained difficult for France.
Margery Elfin’s latest book, A Nation on Trial: France and the Legacy of the Dreyfus Affair, examines the background, the intense media scrutiny both at home and abroad, the continued abuses of French Jews during the Vichy era of the 1930s and 40s, and the nation’s unfinished business.
Join Elfin and Forest Hills Connection for her book talk at the home of Jane and Daniel Solomon, 2935 Albemarle Street, NW, on Sunday, October 30th from 3 to 4:30 p.m. (Please RSVP here.)
