Dreyfus. It's a name that we all know and a story that we all know bits of. We choose to present the Dreyfus Affair because we believe that it's a story that includes a pointed warning and reminder of just how fragile the standards of civilized conduct prove to me in moments of national panic. Although this is a story that took place in the immediate shadow of the monument of modernity - the Eiffel Tower - and one of the first tests of modern pluralist liberalism and its institutions, it is a portent for all of us today with antisemitism on the rise once again.
