VISIT Deborah Lipstadt’s DENIAL website here – hdot.org (Holocaust Denial on Trial)
Holocaust Denial on Trial was created by Professor Deborah E. Lipstadt and colleagues and is a joint project of Emory University and Emory’s Tam Institute for Jewish Studies. Its mission is to ensure perpetual access to the evidence, transcripts, judgment, and appeal documents that made the case in the David Irving v. Penguin Books U.K. and Deborah Lipstadt trial and to refute the misleading claims of Holocaust deniers with historical evidence. Alongside these goals, hdot.org strives to educate the public about the threat Holocaust denial poses to history, society, law, and identity. By attempting to force the courts into complicity with his antisemitic, racist worldview, David Irving sought the ultimate legal credential for his hate. Therefore, we present this collection of primary documents and educational materials as aids to students, teachers, journalists, politicians, and the general public to demonstrate power of truth over deception and history over hate.
