Dreyfus affair in France between 1870 and 1914 in Germany and in the Austro Hungarian anti-Semitism was widespread although it was France to exemplify this new web of politics and anti-Semitism. The defeat by Prussia and industrialization had caused many disgruntled that they found a scapegoat Jews. E.
