Denial [Movie Tie-in]: Holocaust History on Trial

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Deborah E. Lipstadt

Narrated By: Kate Udall

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: September 2016

Duration: 13 hours 16 minutes

Summary:

In her acclaimed 1993 book Denying the Holocaust, Deborah Lipstadt called David Irving, a prolific writer of books on World War II, “one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial.” The following year, after Lipstadt’s book was published in the United Kingdom, Irving led a libel suit against Lipstadt and her publisher. She prepared her defense with the help of a first-rate team of solicitors, historians, and experts, and a dramatic trial unfolded.

Denial, previously published as History on Trial, is Lipstadt’s riveting, blow- by-blow account of this singular legal battle, which resulted in a formal denunciation of a Holocaust denier that crippled the movement for years to come. Lipstadt’s victory was proclaimed on the front page of major news- papers around the world, such as The Times (UK), which declared that “history has had its day in court and scored a crushing victory.”

    The book itself is excellent and very detailed, perhaps a little too detailed regarding trial methods. However it was well worth my time, educationally, and for general knowledge. Unfortunately more Holocaust deniers are surfacing and this is a timely publication with the movie!!!
