Dress Rehearsal for Dreyfus: the Duchesse de Berry, Simon Deutz, and Modern France’s First Antisemitic Affair

Mon, 3/26 · 4:30 pm6:00 pm · 106 McCormick

Maurice Samuels, Yale University

Program in European Cultural Studies and Eberhard L. Faber 1915 Memorial Fund in the Humanities Council

In 1832, the Duchesse de Berry launched a civil war to recapture the French throne for her 11-year-old son.  She was turned into the government by her trusted confidant, a convert from Judaism named Simon Deutz.  This talk argues that the “affair” that resulted from the arrest of the duchess set the tone for a century of French antisemitism that followed.
