Arno Klarsfeld critique vivement son prédécesseur à l’OFII

Arno Klarsfeld a estimé que Dominique Paillé était “un peu le  Zelig de la politique française, tantôt à gauche, tantôt à droite, tantôt au centre”, par allusion au personnage de Voltaire.

About the news in your French online edition, is it possible to tell to the writers that “Zelig” wasn’t written by Voltaire at all? It’s a Woody Allen movie!
