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.

Deborah E. Lipstadt's heroic defence of the truth

Any additional comments?

Deborah E. Lipstadt's heroic defence of the truth deserves the five star response, and especially so as we are currently living in troubling times when the Far/Alt Right are on the rise again as if the history of humanity has never been heard and learnt.

Holocaust Deniers and Revisionists such as David Irving need to be called out at every opportunity for unless challenged their warped version of history becomes an acceptable truth, and therefore normalises intolerance.

All hail victory for Lipstadt.

To think people like Irving exist sickens me. To begin to comprehend what D.L. had to go through is strengthening. What a struggle to go through that & still have people look down on you. Not I & this book enlightened me to her positive outlook & never give up attitude. Tell the truth & it shall set you free. Read this book & different perspectives unfold before you into a Web of insanity that plays out in a court system so different from ours in the US.
I enjoyed learning the depth of the facts of this case & truly both sides at that.
well told piece of history.
Well read, but the pauses in mid sentence started to irk me. perhaps it was to assist in the language impact or just the reader. Regardless it's well told enough to be able to look past it & continue to the end.

Educational account

Educational listening. Interesting to hear about the Trump-style antics of Mr. D. Irving and racist propaganda networks. However, the trial arguments and exchanges don't work well for an audio book. This not a literary masterpiece or a psychological or sociological analysis but the account of a notorious case in the trial. I miss a deeper understanding of the social pathology that people like Irving stands for.
