This chapter discusses Bolesław Prus's (1847–1912) coverage of the ‘Dreyfus affair’. Quite apart from its impact on French domestic politics at the turn of the century, the Dreyfus affair was a starting point for many significant intellectual and social processes, including the formation and consolidation of institutionalized Zionism. The name Dreyfus first appeared in Bolesław Prus's column ‘Weekly Chronicles’ (Kroniki Tygodniowe), which he contributed to the newspaper Kurier codzienny on 15 November 1896. Prus, one of the leading Polish prose-writers of the second half of the nineteenth century, wrote journalistic ‘chronicles’ of this type throughout his mature life from 1874 until 1911. They had a fixed place in the most well-known newspapers which appeared in Warsaw in the second half of the nineteenth century.

Keywords:   Bolesław Prus, Dreyfus affair, Zionism, Kurier codzienny, journalistic chronicles, Polish newspapers, Polish journalism
