Playwright and screenwriter David Hare and scholar Deborah E. Lipstadt will discuss their work on the 2016 film, Denial. The film is based on Lipstadt’s legal battle with David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In libel cases, the English legal system places the burden of proof on the defendant, so Lipstadt and her legal team had to prove that the Holocaust occurred.
