Denying the Holocaust : the growing assault on truth and memory by Deborah E Lipstadt( Book )

47 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,732 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author shows how, despite witnesses and evidence to the contrary, this irrational idea has not only continued to gain adherents but has become an internationally organized movement. She argues vehemently against giving Holocaust deniers a forum in the name of free speech or freedom of the press and she details the efforts of California revisionist Bradley Smith, who pushed a "Holocaust was a hoax" campaign in college newspapers throughout the United States

Auschwitz : a doctor's story by Lucie Adelsberger( Book )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty years after the liberation of the concentration camps, this memoir by Lucie Adelsberger, a Jewish female physician shipped to Auschwitz and put to work in the infirmary of the infamous death camp's Gypsy section, serves as a haunting reminder of the horrors perpetrated by the Nazi regime. Adelsberger vividly describes the Hell that was Auschwitz, uniquely capturing the ordeals suffered by women, who were especially vulnerable once they reached the camps. Throughout her account, Adelsberger depicts the methods the Nazis used to degrade and dehumanize Jews and other holocaust victims, robbing them of their dignity, their freedom, and oftentimes their lives. Her poignant testament to the human suffering and the human spirit at Auschwitz will stir readers deeply
Holocaust : an American understanding by Deborah E Lipstadt( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 343 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Immediately after World War II, there was little discussion of the Holocaust, but today the word has grown into a potent political and moral symbol, recognized by all. In Holocaust: An American Understanding, renowned historian Deborah E. Lipstadt explores this striking evolution in Holocaust consciousness, revealing how a broad array of Americans--from students in middle schools to presidents of the United States--tried to make sense of this inexplicable disaster, and how they came to use the Holocaust as a lens to interpret their own history. Lipstadt weaves a powerful narrative that touches on events as varied as the civil rights movement, Vietnam, Stonewall, and the women's movement, as well as controversies over Bitburg, the Rwandan genocide, and the bombing of Kosovo. Drawing upon extensive research on politics, popular culture, student protests, religious debates and various strains of Zionist ideologies, Lipstadt traces how the Holocaust became integral to the fabric of American life. Even popular culture, including such films as Dr. Strangelove and such books as John Hershey's The Wall, was influenced by and in turn influenced thinking about the Holocaust. Equally important, the book shows how Americans used the Holocaust to make sense of what was happening in the United States. Many Americans saw the civil rights movement in light of Nazi oppression, for example, while others feared that American soldiers in Vietnam were destroying a people identified by the government as the enemy. Lipstadt demonstrates that the Holocaust became not just a tragedy to be understood but also a tool for interpreting America and its place in the world. Ultimately Holocaust: An American Understanding tells us as much about America in the years since the end of World War II as it does about the Holocaust itself"--Provided by publisher
The Reichstag Graffiti = Die Reichstag-Graffiti by Norman Foster( Book )

8 editions published in 2003 in English and German and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Reichstag, the walls speak. Covered in Russian graffiti written by victorious Soviet soldiers in 1945, they've remained silent, their words hidden for decades, until rediscovered by architect Norman Foster and his team, who began work on the building in 1995. Preserved by Foster as part of his concept of the Reichstag as a "living museum" of German history, these anti-German scribblings remain a hotly debated subject. Some charge that the graffiti is morally offensive and masochistic, while others argue that its presence indicates a brave determination not to forget the tragedies of the past. Accompanying essays consider the graffiti as a monument to the individual and offer an historical account of the Battle of Berlin through the eyes of Red Army soldiers as they approached their ultimate goal, the Reichstag
Betrifft, Leugnen des Holocaust by Deborah E Lipstadt( Book )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Eichmann trial by Deborah E Lipstadt( )

3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The capture of SS officer Adolf Eichmann by Israeli agents in 1960 and his subsequent trial by an Israeli court electrified the world. The public debate it sparked on where, how, and by whom Nazi war criminals should be brought to justice, and the international media coverage of the trial itself, was a watershed moment in how the civilized world in general and Holocaust survivors in particular dealt with the legacy of genocide on a scale never seen before. Historian Deborah E. Lipstadt gives us an overview of the trial and analyzes the effect that the survivors' courtroom testimony--which was itself not without controversy--had on a world that had until then never fully understood what those in the camps had actually experienced. As the world continues to confront the ongoing reality of genocide, this trial of the century offers a legal, moral, and political framework for coming to terms with unfathomable evil

From the Protocols of the elders of Zion to Holocaust denial trials : challenging the media, the law, and the academy( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In reaction to the Irving v. Penguin/Lipstadt (winter, 2000) trial, the editors of this volume sought to provide a text that moves away from the Holocaust itself to ask broader questions about the stubborn persistence of anti-Semitic invective and historical distortion despite legal verdicts to the contrary, historical correctives and media reportage. In these essays the authors explore the assumptions and methods of their disciplines that limit or enhance the ability of any single approach (historical, legal, or journalistic) to challenge the racism and/or anti-Semitism which underlie the persistence of such forgeries as The protocols of the elders of Zion and the fallacies of Holocaust denial. Teachers of college and graduate courses on the Holocaust are increasingly faced with proliferating print and web based assertions and re-assertions of premises whose veracity have been long since disproved. This text encourages students and professionals to explore through three trial contexts (Protocols of Zion, Eichmann/Nuremberg, and Holocaust denial) the way in which claims related to the fate of Jews in the twentieth century have been made, struggled over, and fixed in the law, in historical canon and in the popular imagination. The Protocols are a forgery and crimes against humanity and genocide against the Jewish people did happen. This volume marks the ways in which we present and re-present the historical facts, the journalism, and the legal proofs that support the truth of those assertions in the face of invective and denial

Denial : Holocaust history on trial by Deborah E Lipstadt( Recording )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her acclaimed 1993 book Denying the Holocaust, Deborah Lipstadt called David Irving, a prolific writer of books on World War II, "one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial." The following year, after Lipstadt's book was published in the United Kingdom, Irving led a libel suit against Lipstadt and her publisher. She prepared her defense with the help of a first-rate team of solicitors, historians, and experts, and a dramatic trial unfolded. Denial, previously published as History on Trial, is Lipstadt's riveting, blow-by-blow account of this singular legal battle, which resulted in a formal denunciation of a Holocaust denier that crippled the movement for years to come. Lipstadt's victory was proclaimed on the front page of major newspapers around the world, such as the London Times, which declared that "history has had its day in court and scored a crushing victory."
