Swiss Ministry
Promotes Revisionism

Geneva (JTA) — The
Defense Ministry here has
been flooded with protests
since it announced that a no-
torious Holocaust revi-
sionist, Mariette Paschoud,
will be promoted from cap-
tain to major in the Swiss
Army.
Ms. Paschoud, a former
high school teacher in
Lausanne with neo-Nazi
connections, was fired two
years ago after lecturing
widely that gas chambers
never existed at the Nazi
death camps.
Although ousted from the
classroom, she continued in
the employ of the Education
Ministry and did military
service in the Swiss army,
which is made up of reser-
vists periodically called up
for a year's active duty.
She has also been a Swiss
military judge.
Her promotion is subject to
confirmation by the Federal
Council.
While Swiss newspapers
said it would be a political
disaster, Defense Ministry
spokesman Daniel Eckmann
told the Jewish Telegraphic
Agency that Ms. Paschoud
had an excellent record.
He stressed that promo-
tions are determined solely

.

by technical qualifications
and performance and are not
influenced by personal
morality or political lean-
ings.
In 1986, Ms. Paschoud
became embroiled in con-
troversy over her connection
to French Holocaust revi-
sionists.
Two French revisionists,
Pierre Guillaume and Henri
Rogues, were barred from
Switzerland for three years
after holding an illegal news
conference in Geneva.
They had come to Switzer-
land in return for a trip
Paschoud had made to
Paris in support of Rogues,
an academician whose doc-
toral thesis questioning the
Holocaust was approved by
the University of Nantes.
Ms. Paschoud made public
statements that initiated
debate and protests.

Following this controver-
sy, the school authorities in
Lausanne enjoined her from
teaching history and began
an investigation into
statements she had made.
Ms. Paschoud did not deny
the existence of the Nazi
camps but said there was no
proof their victims were
gassed to death.

Italian Jews Protest
Rally In Spain

Rome (JTA) — A mass ral-
ly by the extreme right wing
took place in Spain last
week, the 16th anniversary
of the death of the fascist
dictator Gen. Francisco
Franco, but not before draw-
ing a strong letter of protest
to the Spanish ambassador
by Italian Jews.
"Allow me to express to
you our pained shock and
our strongest regret at lear-
ning from newspapers that
there will be in Madrid an
international rally of people
nostalgic for Nazi- fascism,"
said the letter signed by
Tullia Zevi, president of the
Union of Italian Jewish
Communities.
"If the information is cor-
rect, this initiative can only
clash with the principles and
deeds that have characteriz-
ed the rebirth of democracy
in Spain," she said.
Italian Jews are especially
sensitive to Franco's fascist
dictatorship since he was
helped to power by the
Italian fascist dictator,
Benito Mussolini, who along
with Hitler's Nazi Germany

backed Franco militarily
during the Spanish Civil
War.
Newspapers all over the
world carried photographs of
crowds screaming fascist
slogans and giving the
straight-arm fascist salute
in the center of Madrid.
"We are living through
days of great concern for the
future of Europe, marked by
epochal events but also by
serious symptoms of econ-
omic, political and social
malaise which must not be
made a gift to agitators and
demagogues," Ms. Zevi's
letter said.
Contrasting the fears
stirred by the fascist rally in
Madrid with the hopes rais-
ed by the Middle East peace
conference which was held
there only two weeks earlier,
Ms. Zevi wrote: "I would like
to express the hope that this
image will not be obscured
by a rally that offends the
memory of millions of vic-
tims of Nazi- fascism and
certainly does not confer
honor and prestige on any-
one who hosts it."
