Prague (JTA) — A group of
Czechoslovak photographers
is carrying out an ambitious
project: making a
photographic record of Jew-
ish sites throughout the
country.
"I don't know if we will be
able to photograph all sites,"
Pavel Jasansky, a founder of
the Signum photographers
group, said in an interview.
"We are working on
Bohemia and Moravia now,
but we would also like to do
Slovakia."
The six Signum photogra-
phers have already taken
thousands of pictures of Jew-
ish cemeteries and some
synagogues.
A selection of the highly
evocative pictures — many
showing in detail desecra-
tion, vandalism and indif-
ference — was shown in an
exhibition in Prague in
January. More pictures, as
well as pictures of Polish
Jewish cemeteries by Polish
photographer Monika Kra-
jewska, are to be exhibited
this fall at the Polish
Cultural Center in Prague.
Signum hopes to have ex-
hibits of the photographs in
Israel, Canada and the

United States. Mr. Jasansky
said the photographs will be
published later this year in a
book, Jews in Bohemia,
Moravia and Slovakia, due
to come out in Czech, Ger-
man, English and Hebrew.

The deadline for pictures
for the book is this June. The
book will be about 200 pages
long, with most photographs
in black and white and a few
in color.
The book will also include
"a sort of oral documenta-
tion, quoting people we talk-
ed to when we photographed
the cemeteries, their
memories, etc.," Mr. Jasan-
sky said.
The majority of the
Signum team is Jewish. "We
got together as a group of
photographers documenting
the revolution here" in 1989,
Mr. Jasansky said. "We
decided we wanted to work
together on major projects,"
including "something
deeper," he said.

Once work on documen-
ting Czechoslovak Jewish
sites is finished, he said, the
group hopes to go to Israel to
photograph Czechoslovak
Jews living there.

Paris (JTA) —
Pandemonium broke out in
the Paris Court of Justice
last week where Holocaust
revisionist Robert Faurisson
is being sued for falsifying
history and inciting racial
hatred.
The self-styled historian,
who is in fact a lecturer in
literature, drew shouts of
"liar" and "bastard" from
spectators when he claimed
that gas chambers never ex-
isted.
Fistfights broke out. A
man shouted that his whole
family had been gassed and
demanded to testify. He was
removed by order of the
judge.
Mr. Faurisson is being
sued by several organiza-
tions of wartime deportees
because of an interview
published in an extreme
right-wing monthly last
September.
He contended in it that the
gas chambers were used for
"disinfection" and that the
Final Solution, the Nazi
plan to exterminate Jews,
Gypsies and other
minorities, did not exist.

The plaintiffs charged Mr.
Faurisson was using the
court as a forum to pro-
pagate his views. They
walked out when the judge
ruled he had the right to
state his case.
Mr. Faurisson wrote the
foreword to the "Leuchter
Report," a revisionist
polemic written by Fred
Leuchter, a Boston-area man
on trial in Massachusetts for
practicing engineering
without a license.
Mr. Leuchter, whose busi-
ness is selling execution
machinery, including gas
chambers, to states that
practice capital punishment,
was commissioned to visit
certain death camp sites and
write a report in support of
Ernst Zundel, a German-
born Canadian convicted in
1988 for spreading "false
news."
Mr. Leuchter concurred
with Mr. Zundel that gas
chambers did not exist.
Despite repeated proof that
his conclusions were
nonsense, Mr. Leuchter's
report has been circulated in
several countries.
