When the author, an American university professor, challenges the work of a “Holocaust denier,” she is sued for libel in the British courts. Combining high-profile courtroom drama with the author’s efforts to debunk the claims that the Holocaust is a myth, the story represents a challenge to the author and the historical record by the purveyors of “alternative facts.” The story has been retold as a movie, which we will screen in conjunction with our discussion.
