Holocaust Museum Houston (HMH) invites you to a private screening of Denial. When university professor Deborah E. Lipstadt includes World War II historian David Irving in a book about Holocaust deniers, Irving accuses her of libel and sparks a legal battle for historical truth. With the burden of proof placed on the accused, Lipstadt and her legal team fight to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. Based on the book "History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier." Following the film, a presentation will be led by three renown speakers with expertise in criminal law or war law.

In partnership with South Texas College of Law Houston, this event is eligible for 1.5 CLE credits (including 0.5 ethics credit).

Featured Speaker:

  • Josh Blackman - Associate Professor of Law at South Texas College of Law Houston
