Founded in 1936


The Mouvement Social Révolutionnaire was founded in 1936 by Eugène Deloncle from members of the secret, extreme Cagoule (Secret Committee of Revolutionary Action), which had been backed, as was the MSR, by Eugène Schueller, the anti-Semite, who in 1910 invented the hair dye he called L’Oréal and made a fortune. Its activities included the destruction of synagogues in Paris, seven in one night in 1941-10, and the confiscation of Jewish property, both with the help of the SS.
