The Justs (original French title: Les Justes ) is a 1949 play by French writer and philosopher Albert Camus.

The play is based on the true story of a group of Russian Socialist-Revolutionaries who assassinated the Grand Duke Sergei Alexandrovich during the Russian revolution of 1905.

The play explores the moral, political, psychological and philosophical issues associated with revolution, violence, love and terrorism.


In an absurd and cruel world which produces violence and savagery, a fundamental question arises:

Does the revolted have the right to kill? Are his actions morally justified?
