In this first full-scale history of Holocaust denial, Lipstadt shows how, despite tens of thousands of living witnesses and vast amounts of documentary evidence, this irrational idea has not only continued to gain adherents but has become an internationally organized movement.

I am a 15 year old sophmore and the only reason that I read this book was for a book review that I had to do for an honors history class. I had to choose a highly opinionated book and I chose this one. I happen to think that it is quite intriguing. Although there is an immense vocabulary selection and intense content I like it. It's one of those books that really 'makes you think' instead of just enjoy. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be educated about such things as this.

The author of this book is a liar. My grand dad opened the front left gate to acuwitz and saw the people. And also shot some of the fleeing nazi officers. The other side of my family was in birkneu and they were being beaten for the enjoymet of the gaurds. When Hitler came to visit the camp he laughed at gaurd who was ripping a person fingers off. Tell me that not fake
THE AUTOR IS EITHER STUPID OR JUST A D**K OR HE IS A NEO-NAZI

Can't believe there are people who deny this time in history. I have been to Dachua in Germany and it was a very sobering experience.

This book is a scholarly work exposing the cancer of Holocaust denial. The history of the denial movement (incorrectly labelled by the deniers themselves as 'historical revisionism' - it is not) is clearly set out. All that is missing is the impact of the internet, which is allowing the cancer to spread through the fallacious use of the freedom of speech arguement (freedom to hate?). This book is a very readable expose of the decietful world of liars and hatemongers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
