Denying the Holocaust : The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory
For years, those who claimed that the death of six million Jews in Nazi concentration camps was nothing but a hoax perpetrated by a powerful Zionist conspiracy, were treated as harmless cranks. But over the past decade, they have begun to gain a hearing in respectable arenas. In this text, a social and intellectual history of Holocaust denial, Lipstadt shows how, despite thousands of living witnesses and vast amounts of documentary evidence, this idea has become an international movement, with organized chapters, "independent" research centres and official publications that promote a "revisionist" view of recent history.
