Café Histoire: Georges Clémenceau

Monday 6 October 2014 17:30-19:00

Nicknamed "Père la Victoire" and "Le Tigre", Georges Clémenceau (1841-1929) was a leader of the French Radical Party and fierce defender of human rights.
He played a central role in every crisis that shook the Third Republic: the Boulangism, the Dreyfus Affair, the separation of Church and State… We will take a close look at his long political career.
