Deborah Lipstadt, History on Trial: My Day in Court with David Irving

Talks/Lectures

In "History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier," Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt recounts the story of her libel trial in London against David Irving who sued her for calling him a Holocaust denier and right wing extremist. The judge found Irving to be a Holocaust denier, a falsifier of history, a racist, an antisemite, and a liar. Her legal battle lasted approximately five years. In July 2001, the Court of Appeal resoundingly rejected Irving’s attempt to appeal the judgment against him.
