Café Littéraire - Elle habitait à Sandwich

The Story: Therese, Franco-Lebanese, lives in Sandwich, Illinois. She decides one night to slam the door without returning back. Now that she is 37 years old, she questions her choices: leaving her home country and following her husband to the United States. Her exile, her husband’s career and the establishing of her own family kept her busy for ten years. Today, her nostalgia pushes the woman to question all those choices, for better or for worse.[...]

Alfred Dreyfus

Alfred Dreyfus

Join us for an evening of culture by attending a conference led by Joseph Gal, PhD. Professor at the University of Colorado about Alfred Dreyfus. 


In 1894, in France, Captain Alfred Dreyfus, a young man of Alsatian origin and of Jewish faith, is accused of having delivered military secrets to the Embassy of the German Empire in Paris. Initially, a simple case of espionage that will lead to a major political and social conflict of the late 19th century.

Professor Joseph Gal is passionate about Alfred Dreyfus' story, and will tell us all about the historical events that occurred in France, and the impact on our modern cultures.  The Case has gained new importance today, due to the recent resurgence of racism and anti-Semitism in many countries around the world.

The conference will be held in English, and followed by a discussion.

WHAT OUR MEMBERS ARE SAYING

Stephen G.

"Alliance Française de Denver created a wonderful virtual environment where I spent my Summer vacation; visiting the winemaking area of Bouzy; celebrating Bastille Day; learning how to cook with flowers; touring historic châteaux and beautiful villages; all in the safety and comfort of my home. A real treat for any Francophone person; especially having a daily place for French chat to try out and maintain colloquial skills."

Sue T.

“Anne is fantastic! The material is fast paced for this ‘old dog’ to learn new tricks, but we couldn’t go slower. It’s been very helpful to prepare me for my trip to France.”
