Biography[edit]

Studies[edit]

He received a bachelor's degree in economical and social administration[1] and master's degrees in history and hungarese, and then followed a seminar of jude studies at the École Pratique des Hautes Études (EPHE).

Activism[edit]

According to Christophe Bourseiller, he would have led, during his youth, a far-left group called Oser lutter, oser vaincre ("Dare to struggle, dare to beat"), based in Issy-les-Moulineaux.[2] Together with Pierre Guillaume, he also founded and contributed to the leftist newspaper La Guerre sociale.[1] He wrote a "Letter to Guy Debord" that has been archived by the latter in his "Lettres reçues" (received letters).[3]

In 1988, he took an interest in former commandant of Bergen-Belsen concentration camp Josef Kramer's trial through a book.[4] After having collaborated on a revisionist magazine,[5] in 1989 he founded his own, titled Revision,[6] which publishes anti-Masonic[7] and antisemitic articles and texts[8] including The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and some articles by Robert Faurisson. The ninth volume reprinted Élie Reclus's article against circumcision. In the same time, he founded the Association contre la mutilation des enfants, together with Xavier Valla. Michel Erlich, a psychiatrist, categorized Revision as "[a vehicle of] delirious antiSemitism";[9] Guionnet has hawked his magazine at Front National conventions.[10]

Alain Guionnet has been sentenced to jail several times (in 1991, 1993 and 1994) by way of the Gayssot Act, for denying the Holocaust.[11] He was also sentenced for defamation toward Pierre Vidal-Naquet.[12]
