File: holocaust notin.001 Jewish Advocate (Boston) 12-18 February, 1993 ------------------------ A French Holocaust-denier whose attempt to return to his teaching job was blocked by protesting students has again been suspended indefinitely by the school where he taught. Bernard Notin was suspended indefinitely from teaching at Lyon III University in southeastern France, which had agreed to take him back on his job as an economics lecturer after three years of suspension. Last week, some 50 demonstators, led by the French Union of Jewish Students, physically prevented the Holocaust-denier from entering the classroom. Notin, who wrote an article in an academic journal decrying the existence of gas chambers during the Holocaust, said after the decision to suspend him indefinitely that he never meant to deny the existence of gas chambers in the Nazi death camps. But in an interview on French television a few days before he was blocked from entering the classroom, Notin said he stood by every single word he had written on the subject.
