THE D ETRO IT J EWIS H NEWS

Play the market right and
you could lose it all.

72

You could lose things
like extra weight. High
blood pressure. And high
blood cholesterol levels.
The very things that con-
tribute to heart attack and
stroke.
All you have to do is invest
wisely at the supermarket.
Buy more in the fresh prod-
uce, pasta, breads and ce-
reals sections. And pur-
chase fish, poultry and
lean meats instead of fatty
or processed meats.

Switch to low-fat dairy prod-
ucts and margarine. And
check the nutritional list-
ings on food labels.
In short, be selective about
how you play this market.
Because no matter how
much you lose, you've got
a lot to win.

Versailles, France (JTA) —
Four hundred policemen and
elite forces surrounded the
Versailles courtroom where
the first trial of a French
citizen indicted for crimes
against humanity was about
to start.
Police marksmen were
visible on the roofs of the
Versailles Court of Justice.
More than 100 journalists
from around the world pack-
ed the courtroom where Paul
Touvier, after years of
hiding from the authorities,
was to go on trial.
Mr. Touvier, the 79-year-
old former head of intel-
ligence for the pro-Nazi
French militia in German-
occupied Lyons, entered the
courtroom walking with ap-
parent difficulty. He has
prostate cancer.
Only 15 seats were made
available to the public, and
they were occupied mainly
by relatives of Mr. Touvier's
victims.
On June 29, 1944, Mr.
Touvier personally picked
seven Jewish hostages and
had them executed in
retaliation for the assassina-
tion the previous day of
Philippe Henriot, the pro-
paganda minister of the
Vichy regime.
Mr. Touvier was condemn-
ed to death twice in 1946 and
1947 for war crimes, but he
managed to elude French
authorities. He subsequent-
ly took shelter in various
French convents and
monasteries until President
Georges Pompidou pardoned
him in November 1972.
Mr. Touvier emerged from
hiding, but Jewish and
French veterans groups in-
itiated charges against him
of crimes against humanity,
a charge that is not subject
to the statute of limitations
and for which pardons do not
apply.
Mr. Touvier went into
hiding again. He was ar-
rested after he was
discovered in May 1989
hiding out in a Nice
monastery.
The only person brought to
trial in France before now
for crimes against humanity
was Klaus Barbie, the Ger-
man Gestapo police chief in
Lyon. Mr. Barbie was
sentenced to life imprison-
ment in 1987. He died in jail
of cancer in 1991.
Three other Frenchman
have been charged with
crimes against humanity,

Paul Touvier:
Others never went to trial.

but their cases never went to
trial.
Rene Bousquet, who was
Vichy's police chief between
1942 and 1944 and was
charged with the deporta-
tion of 2,000 Jewish chil-
dren, was killed by a
deranged gunman last June
at the age of 82.
Jean Leguay, who was in-
dicted in 1979 for organizing
the first mass roundup of
Jews in France in 1942, died
of natural causes in 1989 at
the age of 79.
Maurice Papon, a senior
official in wartime
Bordeaux, has managed to
block his trial with a series
of legal maneuvers. Mr.
Papon, who served as Paris
police chief in the 1960s and
was a Cabinet member in
the 1970s, is 83 and may
never come before a court.
Part of the first day of Mr.
Touvier's trial was devoted
to jury selection. Once the
nine members of the jury
were chosen, Mr. Touvier's
lawyer, Jacques Tremolet de
Villers, argued that the
court should dismiss all but
one of civil suits that had
been brought against Mr.
Touvier by 23 plaintiffs.
Mr. Touvier's lawyer bas-
ed his argument on a new
French penal code according
to which there is a statute of
limitation of 30 years for
civil suits.
The court was recessed,
and it took almost three
hours for the three judges to
reach their conclusion:
International treaties on
crimes against humanity
supersede national laws.
The plaintiffs were allowed
to sue Mr. Touvier.
The rest of the session was
