Movie Night- Monday November 13, 2017 at 7:30 in the Boardroom
We will be screening the movie “Denial” which is based on the book, "History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier".
Denial recounts Deborah E. 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 occurred.
Staring: Rachel Weisz and Timothy Spall.
Those going to the “Evidence Room” exhibit at the ROM would benefit by watching the film.
