Léon Blum (1872-1950) was a literary man, a statesman and remains a major figure of French socialism. He entered into politics during the Dreyfus case and was close to Jaurès’ socialist views. At the 1920 Tours congress he opposed participation in the Third Communist International. He then became the leader of the Front Populaire in 1936.
