"History on Trial" with Deborah Lipstadt and Alan Dershowitz
Deborah Lipstadt, the Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies at Emory University, is the author of Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory and a new book, History on Trial: My Day in Court with David Irving [Ecco 2005]. The book is Lipstadt's account of the 2000 trial that attracted international attention in which she mounted a defense against Holocaust denier, David Irving, who sued her for libel for calling him a denier. Irving suffered a resounding loss. Alan Dershowitz, who wrote the afterword to the book, will respond to Lipstadt.
