ABSTRACT
Reports that if Erich Honecker, 79, is deemed well enough to stand trial for manslaughter and an array of other charges, the longtime leader of Communist East Germany will go to court this fall. Honecker was arrested in 1935 by the Gestapo; He impresses many Germans as a resistance fighter gone bad; Chancellor Helmut Kohl is offering Honecker to eastern Germans alienated by the ill effects of unity; His testimony may deepen the rift between east and west.
