Condemned to Devil's Island
Retired Lieutenant Colonel Alfred Dreyfus attends a ceremony dedicating a memorial plague at the Paris home of author Emile Zola. Zola had been Dreyfus' most ardent defenders. Dreyfus had been unjustly sent to the Devil's Island penal colony for treason. Drefus wears civilian clothes: hat, three-piece suit, and sunglasses.
