Is historical truth worth fighting about ? Historian Deborah Lipstadt was forced into an English courtroom to defend charges that she had libeled a Holocaust denier. It became her burden to prove that the Holocaust had, in fact, happened. Does truth matter? What are the limits of free speech? Join us as we welcome Deborah Lipstadt, First Amendment attorney Floyd Abrams, and Pulitzer Prize-winning Wall Street Journal columnist Bret Stephens to discuss the case that was an international sensation and is now a major motion picture, Denial.
