    • 1. Dreyfus Affair Not as hot as it sounds
    • 2. Captain Alfred Dreyfus • French intelligence officer • Jewish in an age of anti-semitism • Accused of treason in passing on artillery secrets to Germans in 1894
    • 3. Devil’s Island • Devil’s Island was a South American penal colony • Dreyfus has a life sentence of hard Labor
    • 4. Questions of doubt • Lt. Col. Piquart, new chief of Military Intelligence, doubted Dreyfus’ guilt • Instead suspected Major Ferdinand Esterhazy • When Piquart refused to keep quiet, his career was ruined by being stationed in disease-filled colonial backwaters
