Who is Jean Jaurès?

Is he a liberator or a destroyer?

Well, maybe both.  Jean Jaurès was a famous French Socialist leader at the turn of the 20th century.  He was anti-militaristic at at time when it wasn't popular to be.  He may have been a great leader of France, if he had not been assassinated.

I stumbled upon Jean Jaurès because he is remembered in the center of Tours--the plaza bears his name and his memory.
