This is an exciting double event! Watch the movie "Denial" A historical film that recounts Deborah Lipstadt's legal battle for truth against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, in cases of libel, the burden of proof is on the defendant, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team, led by Richard Rampton, to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. THEN, stay for the 92nd Street Y conversation with the actual Deborah Lipstadt! $5.00 pp, Pizza will be provided. No RSVP needed. Bring friends.
