French courts have crack-
ed down on revisionists in
recent months. On May 14,
Alain Guionnet, editor of a
periodical dedicated to the
premise that the Holocaust
was a hoax, was sentenced to
nine months in jail and or-
dered to pay $13,500 in
damages to Jewish groups
he defamed in his writings.
Meanwhile, an amended
version of a bill providing

Bernard Notin, a senior
lecturer at Lyon University,
was the latest revisionist
historian to be penalized by
a French court.
A civil suit was brought
against him by the Move-
ment Against Racism and
Anti-Semitism on the basis
of an article he published
last January in a
sociological journal edited by
Lyon University.
Notin wrote that gas
chambers were "a figment of
popular imagination
without any historic basis."
He added an anti-Semitic
slur, which could result in
criminal charges against
him for slandering the dead
and spreading racial hatred.

an international conference
held in Paris last year at the
instigation of Nobel
Laureate Elie Weisel, a
Holocaust survivor, and
sponsored by President
Francois Mitterrand, Notin

Israel's Second Space
Vehicle Reenters, Burns

Tel Aviv (JTA) — Ofek-2,
Israel's second space
satellite launched April 3,
re-entered Earth's at-
mosphere on Monday and
burned up after orbiting the
earth for 97 days.
Re-entry had been ex-
pected after 50 to 60 days.
The Israel Space Agency
and Israel Aircraft In-
dustries, which manufac-
tured Ofek, reported that it
operated perfectly on some
1,500 90-minute circuits of
the globe.
It temporarily stopped
transmitting signals for one
week in May, when the solar
panels were turned away
from the sun, cutting off its
source of electric power.
According to Israel's space
agency, Ofek was not engag-
ed in scientific research. It
was sent aloft to provide
data to designers for con-
struction of a third satellite,

Ofek-3, which is to be laun-
ched in 12 to 18 months.
Ofek-1 was launched Sept.
19, 1988, making Israel the
first Middle East space
power. That flight lasted 118

France Gets
Female Rabbi

Paris (JTA) — France has
its first woman rabbi.
Pauline Bebe, a 26-year-
old mother of 2, will assume
rabbinical duties at the Lib-
eral Movement synagogue
here on Sept. 1, shortly
before the High Holidays.
The congregation of some
1,200 families is an island of
liberal Judaism in a city
where affiliated Jews are
overwhelmingly Orthodox.
Bebe, who comes from a
traditional family, com-
pleted her studies at the Leo
Baeck College in London.
