Based on her acclaimed book Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, Denial recounts Holocaust scholar Deborah E. Lipstadt’s (Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz) legal battle for historical truth against David Irving (BAFTA nominee Timothy Spall). Irving filed a lawsuit against her when Lipstadt declared him a Holocaust denier in her book Denying the Holocaust. In the UK, the burden of proof is on the defendant in cases of libel, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team, led by Richard Rampton (Academy Award® nominee Tom Wilkinson), to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred. Rated PG-13.
In addition, join us for the opening of our newest temporary exhibition, "Censorship and Banned Books, 1933-1945." The exhibition focuses on the varied history of censorship and banned books in Germany and the United States, with an emphasis on the differences in targets, motivations, and means over time. The exhibition is presented in support of Banned Books Week. Join the "Banned Book Club" for a discussion of Strange Fruit by Lillian Smith at 4 p.m. before the exhibit opening. Copies of the book are on reserve from Kennesaw State University's Sturgis Library.
Join the Museum of History and Holocaust Education for the next installment in our Dinner, Movie & a Tour series. The MHHE will be open for tours preceding the movie and pizza will be served.
