To celebrate the release of the film adaptation of Deborah Lipstadt’s incredible true story we’re giving away 5 double passes to see Denial in cinemas and 5 Film Tie In Paperback editions of the book! Denial is a compelling true story of history on trial, to enter, fill in the form below and tell us what true story or piece of non-fiction you would most like to see dramatised and why?
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 filed 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 news-papers around the world, such as The Times (UK), which declared that ‘history has had its day in court and scored a crushing victory.’
Congratulations to our lucky winners:
