Deborah Lipstadt Author Talk

Wednesday, February 16, 2022
12 p.m. – 1 p.m.
This event will be held on Zoom.

Join Deborah Lipstadt for a discussion of her latest book, Antisemitism: Here and Now, a captivating analysis of current political trends that bolster prejudice and hostility towards Jews in today’s world.

Deborah Lipstadt is currently Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. She is best known for having been sued for libel by David Irving, one of the world’s leading Holocaust deniers. The case, which lasted for six years and was heard in court in a twelve-week trial, resulted in Irving being declared by the court to be “a right-wing polemicist,” who engages in antisemitism, racism, and misogyny. That trial was depicted in the 2016 film Denial and was based on her book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier.

The American Library Association and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s traveling exhibition Americans and the Holocaust examines the motives, pressures, and fears that shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war, and genocide. Guests will have the opportunity to explore a complementary exhibit Snapshots of Orange County in the 1940s: Spaces, Places, Faces curated by UCI Libraries, which provides further insight into different Orange County communities’ experiences through World War II.

This event is part of the Americans and the Holocaust Exhibition Event Series.
