Featuring Guest Speaker


Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt

Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt has published and taught about the Holocaust for almost 40 years. Her 2017 TED Talk, where she discussed her 1996 libel trial of Holocaust denier David Irving, has received close to 1.4 million views. The movie Denial was based on her experience. Professor Lipstadt’s most recent book, Antisemitism: Here and Now, was published in early 2019 and has been praised as “crucial for understanding the dismaying resurgence of antisemitism.” She has held the Presidential appointment to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council and represented the White House at the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
