The account of a trial in which the very meaning of the Holocaust was put on the stand.
From the Publisher:
D. D. Guttenplan's THE HOLOCAUST ON TRIAL is a bristling courtroom drama where the meaning of history is questioned. The plaintiff is British author David Irving, one of the world's preeminent military historians whose works are considered essential World War II scholarship and whose biographies of leading Nazi figures have been bestsellers. Irving refuses to admit to Hitler's responsibility in the extermination of European Jewry, replying that the Holocaust as we know it never happened.

The defendant is Deborah Lipstadt, who blew the whistle on Irving, calling him "one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial." Irving sued for libel, and under English law, it was up to Lipstadt to prove the truth of her writings, and the falseness of Irving's views. 4 pages of b/w photographs.D. D.

Annotation:
This volume, by a contributing editor of the Nation, analyses the trial in which David Irving sued Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin Books for libel, after it was published in their book DENYING THE HOLOCAUST that Irving was a Holocaust-denier. The study presented here follows the case as it unfolded in the English court system in January through April of 2000. Interviews with the judge and both parties add dimension to the information gleaned from courtroom proceedings and research.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"Before the court hearing, Gutenplan met all the principal players, and he draws vivid portraits of the cast...." - Geoffrey Wheatcroft 05/13/2001

Times Literary Supplement
"[C]omprehensive...cool and distant from its subjects, a useful introduction for readers with a prior interest in the trial....Guttenplan...gained admirable access to everything from defence strategy to Irving's personal diaries." - Mark Greif 07/13/2001
