David Irving is the leading Holocaust revisionist. He sued Penguin Books for libel. The trial was one of the strangest ever to take place in an English court: the judge had to give a verdict on history. At stake was the freedom of neo-fascist historians to exonerate Hitler and to deny that the Nazis set out to commit genocide, but his was also a trial about the present day, about what our society finds it politically and morally acceptable to say in public. It was also a libel trial about evidence: how do we know that the genocide happened. D.D. Guttenplan has followed David Irving's career for years and has studies the furious debates over the Holocaust. This is a dramatic recreation of a bizarre trial and a mediation on truth and discovery.
