Lipstadt, Deborah - still image [media]

Lipstadt, Deborah - still image [media]

After publication of her seminal work Denying the Holocaust, Deborah Lipstadt was sued by a historian whom she had accused of denying the Holocaust. To disprove his claim she had to demonstate that the events he denied had actually occurred. Thus a court case about libel ultimately served to put the truth of the Holocaust on trial, and to catapult Professor Lipstadt from "academic" to "celebrity."
