It's been a century since the French army framed Alfred Dreyfus, a young Jewish captain, on a charge of passing secrets to the Germans, convicted him in a closed-door court-martial and shipped him off to Devil's Island with a life prison sentence.

Dreyfus himself was eventually exonerated and returned to active duty, fighting alongside his son in World War I and receiving the French Legion of Honor medal.
