This week the PBS show NOVA has an hour-long broadcast on Holocaust Denial focusing on the recently concluded libel trial against Deborah Lipstadt in Great Britain. Lipstadt, author of Denying the Holocaust, was sued in the UK by Holocaust denier David Irving who claimed she libeled him. Even with the UK’s ridiculously lax libel laws — she had to prove not only that the Holocaust was a historical fact but that Irving intentionally distorted historical facts to arrive at his denial position — Lipstadt easily prevailed. The NOVA broadcast apparently recreates some of the issues raised at the libel trial.
