"Denial" - The Holocaust on Trial: Deborah Lipstadt, Floyd Abrams, Bret Stephens and Thane Rosenbaum

Nov 1, 2016

Is historical truth worth fighting about? Historian Deborah Lipstadt was forced into an English courtroom to defend charges that she had libeled a Holocaust denier. It became her burden to prove that the Holocaust had, in fact, happened. Does truth matter? What are the limits of free speech. Join us as we welcome Deborah Lipstadt, First Amendment attorney Floyd Abrams, to discuss the case that was an international sensation and is now is a major motion picture, Denial.
