Publisher's 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 newspapers around the world, such as The Times (UK), which declared that "history has had its day in court and scored a crushing victory".

Justice History and the Law

An extremely thorough description of Lipstadt's defence of the defamation case brought against her by Holocaust denier David Irving. Even though the verdict is now a mattter of historical record she manages to capture the tension and uncertainty she experienced as the trial proceeded. A thoroughly bad man Irving exposes himself as much as the defence team reveal is lies, bigotory and grotesque inhumanity.

The Deeply Dislikeable David Irving on trial.

What made the experience of listening to Denial [Movie Tie-in] the most enjoyable?

It is incredible that the likes of David Irving can still deny the Holocaust and the death of six million Jews after the mountain of evidence, film and first hand accounts to the contrary.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Denial [Movie Tie-in]?

How David Irving's dishonest representation of events was unmasked.


Have you listened to any of Kate Udall’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Not listened to Kate Udall before.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

What moved me was the emotional anguish involved in reducing David Irving's version of the Holocaust to banal fiction.


Any additional comments?

Superb narrative with gripping courtroom drama rarely found in a non-fiction work. Well worth the time spent listening.
