Devil's Island (French Īle du Diable) is the smallest island of the three Īles du Salut located off the coast of French Guiana.
It was a notorious French penal colony until 1946.
The horrors of the penal settlement became notorious in 1895 with the publicity surrounding the plight of the Jewish French army captain Alfred Dreyfus who had been wrongfully convicted of treason and was sent there on January 5.
