France’s minister of education appointed a commission of historians to examine the influence of Holocaust-denying professors at the University of Lyon III. The move by Jack Lang was prompted by a campaign waged by the Union of Jewish Students of France and other student organizations to publicize the Holocaust-denial research of a group of scholars with strong ties to extreme right groups, and to nullify some recent doctoral theses that sought to minimize the Holocaust.
