Dreyfus Statue:
Justice Triumph

RABBI BERNARD S. RASKAS

Special to The Jewish News

S

t. Paul — On July 14,
the Tuileries garden
in Paris will become
the focus of the world's atten-
tion as France officially
marks the 200th anniversary
of the French Revolution.
As part of the celebration,
the Declaration of the Rights
of Man and Citizen, which
was to become the preamble
of the French constitution in
1891, will be read.
How ironic that this
200-year-old French docu-
ment, which expounds equali-
ty and liberty, should be read
in the very same setting
which has again highlighted
a classic controversy over the
denial of the rights of Alfred
Dreyfus, a prominent French
Jew.
In the garden, there was
recently erected a statue in
honor of Dreyfus. Standing in
the very heart of French
power and culture, it reminds
one and all of the story of a
Jewish army captain disgrac-
ed on false charges as a Ger-
man spy and later
rehabilitated.
The son of a wealthy,
assimilated Jewish family,
Alfred Dreyfus (1859-1935)
became a captain on the
general staff of the French
Army, where he was the only
Jew.
In a closed trial, based on
suspicious evidence, including
the testimony of a fellow of-
ficer who later admitted he
lied, Dreyfus was found guil-
ty of treason. On Jan. 5, 1895,
he was publicly dishonored
and sent to Devil's Island.
Throughout the procedure,
Dreyfus declared, "I am inno-
cent." Incited by the anti-
Semitic press, mobs roamed
the streets screaming
epithets.
His defenders continued to
press his case for exoneration.
On Jan. 13, 1898, the
newspaper L'Aurore published
200,000 copies entitled "J'Ac-
cuse!"
Once more, the question
was raised whether Dreyfus
was a victim of anti-Semitic
prejudice and framed. As a
result, a second trial was
held, the evidence was found
to be completely unsubstan-
tiated, and he was was
exonerated.
The events officially con-

Bernard S. Raskas is rabbi
emeritus of the Temple of
Aaron in St. Paul and a
lecturer in religious studies at
Macalester College.
