Dreyfus wrote:

My moral strength has never abandoned me, a pure and clean conscience will give me superhuman strength.

I am convinced that we will manage to discover the truth, that light will be shed on the tragic affair.

Dreyfuss was found innocent in 1906, in large part to the famous Émile Zola letter titled “J’accuse” published in the Paris “L’Aurore” newspaper.
