Claude Ribbe.

Claude Ribbe (born October 13, 1954 in Paris ) is a French writer.


The son of a father from Guadeloupe is a graduate of the Paris École Normale Supérieure and a member of the “Commission nationale consultative des droits de l'homme (CNCDH)”, a “committee on human rights issues”.

In his book “Le Crime de Napoleon” from 2005, he proposes that Napoleon's regime murdered thousands of Antillans in Saint-Domingue by gassing in an attempt to put down the uprisings of black slaves in Haiti and Guadeloupe . As is customary for killing rats in ship holds, sulfur was burned to form sulfur dioxide gas. The connection between Napoleon and Hitler and the Holocaust is also established through the cover picture, which, according to Jacques Pilet, shocked the most. It shows Hitler in a reverential pose in front of Napoleon's remains in the Invalides, on June 23, 1940, during his brief visit to Paris. The photo is hardly known as it would be a nuisance to historians. Ribbe also reported other atrocities, such as a written order to publicly "feed negroes" to military dogs.

In 2010 Ribbe sent a petition to the President of the Republic of Sarkozy , so that after more than 200 years , the Revolutionary General Thomas Alexandre Dumas could be awarded the Legion of Honor . The general was denied this honor during the revolution because of his mother, an enslaved African.
