La Libre parole illustree, 2nd annee, No. 50, Samedi, June 23, 1894

Publication | Accession Number: 2016.184.237.3

Issue of La Libre parole, a rabidly antisemitic and racist illustrated newspaper with the slogan "La France aux Français!" [France for the French!] published in France from 1892-1924. The cover illustration caption for this issue: "Moralisation a outrance - Courtet." The newspaper was founded by the journalist Edouard Drumont, who claimed in an 1896 book, La France Juive [The French Jew] that Jews were responsible for everything that had gone wrong in France and were a threat to all good Frenchmen. Drumont was also a rabid anti-Dreyfusard. The journal quickly became very influential. In 1889, Drumont founded the Ligue Nationale antisémitique de France. He was elected to the national legislature in 1898. The newspaper is one of the more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
