Henry Coston

Biography

French far-right, anti-Semitic journalist, collaborationist and conspiracy theorist.

After joining the Action française, Coston was influenced by journalist Édouard Drumont and took over his newspaper La Libre Parole (an anti-Semitic paper well-known during the Dreyfus affair) in the 1930s. At the same time he created an "Anti-Jewish Youth" organisation.

During World War II, Coston belonged to Jacques Doriot's fascist PPF. He also was vice-president of the "Association of anti-Jewish Journalists" and he organised the publication of one of the most anti-Semitic document of the Vichy regime, a tract entitled "I hate you" (Je vous hais).

In 1944, he tried to escape in Austria, but he was captured and sentenced to hard labour for life. He was pardoned in 1952 for illness and served only five years.

Until the 1990s he was contributing to different far-right newspapers.

He died in Caen, Normandy, 26 July 2001.
