Excerpt from Dreyfus and the Shame of France: Including the Views of Zangwill, Zola and Other Famous Writers, Scholars and Statesmen Russia has had its Siberian horrors, Turkey its Armenian atrocities, but France, brilliant France, at the head of nations in the glories of art, culture, and advanced civilization, surpasses all in the infamy of its great national scandals.
Russia has discarded its Siberian terrors and Turkey is maintaining order in Armenia, but France still has its disgraced system of justice.
From the Mississippi scheme, early in the pre ceding century, to the Panama scandal, the romance of French history exceeds in startling situations the romance of her novelists.
