Dreyfus's descendants include many public spirited Frenchmen and women.
Both his sons, Pierre and Jean, were decorated for their military
service in World War I, and his nephew, Emile, died in battle in World
War I and received the Legion of Honor, according to Professor Michael
Burns of Mount Holyoke College, author of "Dreyfus: A Family Affair"
(1992). Two granddaughters, Madeleine Levy, a social worker, and Simone
Perl, worked with the French Resistance during World War II. Levy was
arrested by the Gestapo and died in Auschwitz in 1944.
