In 1996, the international lecturer and Nazi Holocaust denier, David Irving, sued historian Deborah Lipstadt in the British courts for calling him a “falsifier of history” in her book Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory.
Irving believed he had a right, without being held accountable, for his hateful falsehoods which denied the historical fact of the Holocaust and Nazi horror.
“Solidly crafted”, writes Wenlei Ma, film reviewer for News.com.au, “DENIAL is anchored by wonderful performances from Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson. It’s also shockingly relevant to the odd place we find ourselves today.”
DENIAL presents a poignant and clear headed argument for the undeniable truth that we so terribly need today.
