Later it came out that the real traitor was someone else, but the evidence was suppressed and the whistle blower was transferred. There was an army cover up to conceal his innocence. His supporters made a lot of noise and engaged a campaign for a new trial. He was eventually released. There were not many Jewish officers in the French Army, and anti-Semitism was evident in his superiors and his charges. The "Dreyfus Affair" created quite a stir in Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
