A timely analysis of the antisemitism and prejudice that fuels Holocaust deniers, written by the inspirational author behind the major motion picture Denial, starring Rachel Weisz. The denial of the Holocaust has no more credibility than the assertion that the earth is flat. Yet there are those who insist that the death of six million Jews in Nazi concentration camps is nothing but a hoax perpetrated by a powerful Zionist conspiracy. Such notions used to be the province of pseudohistorians who argued that Hitler never meant to kill the Jews, and that only a few hundred thousand died in the camps from disease; they also argued that the Allied bombings of Dresden and other cities were worse than any Nazi offense, and that the Germans were the "true victims" of World War II. For years, those who made such claims were dismissed as harmless cranks operating on the lunatic fringe. But now, in the first full-scale history of Holocaust denial, Deborah Lipstadt shows how--despite living witnesses and vast amounts of documentary evidence--this irrational idea not only has continued to gain adherents but has become an international movement, with organized chapters, "independent" research centers, and official publications that promote a "revisionist" view of recent history. Lipstadt shows how Holocaust denial thrives in the current atmosphere of value relativism, and argues that this chilling attack on the factual record not only threatens Jews but undermines the very tenets of objective scholarship that support our faith in historical knowledge.… (mais)

The 1993 book that annoyed the infamous David Irving enough to take its author to court for libel. I was unsurprised to read that Holocaust deniers like Irving have used the same tactics as creationists, climate change deniers, moon hoaxers, 9/11 thruthers, and every conspiracy theorist ever, namely: the ignoring of evidence that doesn't fit their narrative, presenting themselves as one side of a debate that is actually no debate at all, (mis)quoting out of context knowing most people will never bother to check original sources, claiming a credibility or authority for themselves that they do no have, bullying witnesses, just plain lying, etc. No surprise either that, almost without exception, it's easy to find strong links between Holocaust deniers and far-right and/or antisemitic organisations. In this book Lipstadt calls them out on their bullshit in clear, unequivocal terms, with numerous appalling examples of their mendacity... and gets dragged through the UK libel courts for her trouble, as if historical truth can be determined in a court of law. As we know, Irving lost spectacularly. ( )

While I appreciate this is an important topic, I just couldn't get into the book. The author has certainly done her research and has tons of documentation supporting her alarm at the sheer size of the denial audience, but it was just to dry to capture my interest.
Not having dived more than about 40 pages into it, I'm not qualified to rate the book.

NO OF PAGES: 278 SUB CAT I: Holocaust SUB CAT II: Anti-Semitism SUB CAT III: DESCRIPTION: A forceful analysis of attempts to deny the Nazi Holocaust. Lipstadt (Religion/Emory University; Beyond Belief, 1985--not reviewed) traces the history of Holocaust revisionism and contends that it can no longer be ignored, showing how Holocaust-deniers, once dismissed as a lunatic fringe, have been growing in numbers and influence during the past 20 years. Citing groups like the Institute for Historical Review, publications like The Spotlight, politicians like David Duke, and academicians like Leonard Jeffries, Lipstadt presents numerous examples of attempts to prove that the extermination of six million Jews is a hoax; that only a few thousand Jews died in the camps from disease; that the Allied bombings of German cities were worse than any Nazi offense; and that the ``true victims'' of WW II were the German people. These distortions of recorded history, argues the author, threaten to undermine our Western rationalist tradition and to legitimize the politicization of history. To Lipstadt, the common thread among Holocaust deniers is a ``purely anti-Semitic diatribe'' portraying Jews as victimizers. Self-declared scholars like Arthur R. Butz (whose credentials are in electronics) claim that Jews used the world's sympathy after the war to ``displace'' another people, establish the nation of Israel, and ``steal'' billions in reparations from their German and Western ``cash cows.'' Lipstadt argues vehemently against giving revisionists 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 US. Lipstadt contends that ``the responses to Holocaust denial by both students and faculty graphically demonstrate the susceptibility of an educated and privileged segment to the kind of reasoning that creates a hospitable climate for the rewriting of history.'' An important, well-documented study that deserves attention.NOTES: Donated by Sid Kase. SUBTITLE: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory
