Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt

October 15, 2018 , 6:00 pm

Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt is the Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish
and Holocaust Studies at Emory University in Atlanta who was sued
for libel in 1996 by David Irving for having called him a Holocaust
denier. In an overwhelming victory for Lipstadt, following a 10-week
trial in London in 2000 the judge found Irving to be a “neo-Nazi
polemicist” who “perverts” history and engages in “racist” and
“anti-Semitic” discourse.

Kosher reception to follow at 7:30 p.m.

Free and open to the public.
