The front page of L’Aurore on January 13, 1898 featured Émile Zola’s open letter to the French President Félix Faure regarding the Dreyfus Affair.

L’Aurore (French for “The Dawn”) was a literary, liberal, and socialist newspaper published in Paris, France, from 1897 to 1916. Its most famous headline was Émile Zola’s “J'Accuse”, leading into his article on the Dreyfus Affair.

The newspaper was published by Georges Clemenceau, who later became the Prime Minister of France. Georges Mandel as a young man worked for the paper in its early years, and later was recruited by Clemenceau to serve as his aide in government.
