I blogged about Deborah E. Lipstadt in these two previous blog posts, both of which you can read at:

This quote is from the news article, cited above:

Principal photography started this week in London on Denial, the Mick Jackson-directed adaptation of Deborah E. Lipstadt’s book, History On Trial: My Day In Court With A Holocaust Denier. Rachel Weisz, Tom Wilkinson and Timothy Spall star and have now been joined by Spectre and Sherlock‘s Andrew Scott.

David Hare did the adaptation of the book which recounts Lipstadt’s legal battle for historical truth against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust Denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused; therefore, it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust happened. Scott joins the cast in the role of solicitor Antony Julius.

Did you catch that, dear readers?  Deborah E. Lipstadt proved in a court of law that the Holocaust happened, just as the Jews say that it did.  And if you say that the Holocaust didn’t happen, you can be thrown into prison for 5 years or more in 19 different countries. So just stick with Deborah E. Lipstadt, who knows all. Don’t try to contradict her, or she will sue you in a court of law.

Lipstadt is the name of a town in Germany.  Some of my German ancestors came to America from Lipstadt, where they had lived for years. Deborah E. and I could be distant relatives, for all I know.
