WASHINGTON - Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right National Front party and a contender in France's presidential elections next year, will not receive special treatment when she visits the US Holocaust Memorial Museum.

Le Pen, the daughter of Jean Marie Le Pen, the founder of the party who has a conviction for Holocaust denial, said in a statement that she would visit the museum while she was in Washington this week. Museum spokesman Andrew Hollinger told JTA that the museum had no formal notice of her arrival and that she would be treated as any other visitor.

"If she comes to the Museum, Ms. Le Pen will not be given any special tours or treatment while she is here," Hollinger said. "She will be a museum visitor."
