Movies that Make a Difference: “Denial”
January 18, 2024 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Holocaust Education Resource Council presents its “Movies that Make a Difference” film festival. The film festival will take place over the course of several months and feature three separate films. The first film in the film festival is Denial. This film is based on the critically acclaimed book History on Trial: My Day In Court written by Deborah Lipstadt. In this film, Deborah Lipstadt faces off against Holocaust denier David Irving in a court in England where he is suing her for libel. Due to laws and requirements, it is up to Deborah Lipstadt and her legal team to prove that the Holocaust happened, and put to rest the claims being made by David Irving once and for all.
There will be a Q&A session with Dr. Monte Finkestein after the film. Copies of the book History on Trial: My Day In Court will be available on a first come first serve basis.
Dr. Monte Finkestein, retired history professor and dean from Tallahassee Community College
This film is free to attend. Registration is required. Funding for this program is provided through Community Project Grant from Florida Humanities with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with the Holocaust Education Resouce Council.
