The History of Antisemitism: The Prisoner and the Writer

Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

In the new book The Prisoner and the Writer, Heather Camlot and Sophie Casson tell the intertwined stories of Alfred Dreyfus and Emile Zola – theirs is a story of antisemitism, international intrigue, and the mercurial nature of justice. In 1895, Captain Alfred Dreyfus was accused of betraying France and exiled to a prison on Devil’s Island. At the same time, the well-known writer Emile Zola began to question Dreyfus’ guilt and felt it was his duty to help the exiled captain who was targeted and blamed because he was Jewish.

Camlot and Casson will be in conversation with Hsu-Ming Teo, Professor of Literature and Creative Writing at Macquarie University, Australia, about the book, which details the Dreyfus Affair and how the two men’s courage changed the world.
