Deborah E. Lipstadt

Deborah E. Lipstadt is shown in the photo above.

Begin quote from news article:

Bleecker Street today announced it has acquired North American rights to Mick Jackson’s film, DENIAL, based on the Deborah E. Lipstadt’s acclaimed book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier. Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz (THE DEEP BLUE SEA, THE CONSTANT GARDENER) will star alongside two-time Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson (MICHAEL CLAYTON, SELMA) and Cannes Award winning Timothy Spall (MR. TURNER, HARRY POTTER).

Adapted for the screen by BAFTA and Academy Award® nominated writer David Hare (THE READER, THE HOURS), the book 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.

End quote

Did you catch that, all you depraved Holocaust deniers? Deborah E. Lipstadt has proved the Holocaust in a court of law. This is the end of Holocaust denial.

I blogged about this film when it was in production:

I also blogged about Deborah E. Lipstadt on these posts:

The news article continues with this quote:

Producers Gary Foster and Russ Krasnoff said, “We have found the perfect partner to bring this important and exceptional story to American audiences with Andrew and Bleecker Street. It’s an awesome responsibility to join Deborah in the defense of truth and history which continues to shape our world. It could only be achieved with a top class cast and we feel fortunate to have Rachel, Tom and Tim headlining this stellar cast with their talent and passion.”

“Deborah Lipstadt teaches history, but her own story is about what is happening right now all around us. DENIAL shows how one person can make a difference in the world by standing up for what is right,” said Jonathan King, EVP Narrative Film, Participant Media.

End quote

On my website, I wrote about Deborah’s visit to the Black Wall at the main Auschwitz camp, several years ago. I included a photo of her entering the courtyard where the black wall is located.

This new movie will probably win an Academy Award, since it is about the favorite subject of the Jews: the Holocaust.


  1. Winning a court case about the ‘Holocaust’ against David Irving was like winning a boxing match against a football player. What a feat!

  2. Winning a court case does not proof anything, especially if your adversary has millions to spend on a legal defense team. Denying aspects of the holocaust does not make you a holocaust denier. David Irving is a superb researcher. I find his books fascination and I will continue reading them.

  3. Might have to wait till our current CIC is out of office for them to show this movie here.

  4. Movies about the Holocaust (e.g., Son of Saul) are SUREFIRE Oscar bait. I was tired of Oscars even before this became so mind-numbingly true.

    • I was extremely disappointed about the movie “Son of Saul”. I hope this new movie about Deborah E. Lipstadt is not as terrible as “Son of Saul”.

      • SXHLAGETER- I too am still disapointed – better say angry – about that and some other mvies showing poor knowledge of the history of those TIMES OF DARKNESSES but certainly not for the same reasons..

        • When Hollywood gets involved in history,the truth rarely comes out.

    • JETT RUCKER. All the price awarding film festivals are, more or less, mocjeries. Look, the movie of Lanzmann THE LAST OF THE UNJUST had been shown at Cannes but not in the race for an official award earning, however, great success.

  5. As you may all know there were but few concentration camps in comparison to the 46 concentration camps set up by the British in South Africa. By starving the women and children to death thhe British managed to kill more than 22000 children and about the same number of women and elderly people. There was no Zyklon B so infectious diseases could not be stopped. The British burned all farms and stole or killed most cattle and horses. Before the British started the war there were over 0ne million cattle – after the war 200,000.
    Let’s call this a holocaust.
    And remember that the British were killing Dutch nationals who called themselves Boers but they spoke Dutch.
    There were many holocausts in the world and the only correct thing, in my opinion, would be to speak of the jewish holocaust if you want to speak about the 1940-1945 war

    • Where credit is due…

      “The English brain gave birth to this idea [of concentration camps].”
