Famed Historian to Give Presentation at UTEP on Holocaust Denial

The University of Texas at El Paso’s Inter-American Jewish Studies Program and the El Paso Holocaust Museum and Study Center present “Confronting Holocaust Denial.”

The presentation starts at 5 p.m. Thursday, February 15, 2018, in UTEP’s Undergraduate Learning Center, Room 106. These free events are open to the public. Free parking will be available in the Sun Bowl Parking Garage (SBG) beginning at 4 p.m.

The main event is a one-hour presentation at 7 p.m. by internationally known author and historian Deborah Lipstadt, Ph.D., Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. She waged a successful legal battle against a Holocaust denier in 2010.

That story is the basis of the 2016 film “Denial,” which stars Rachel Weisz. That movie will be screened at 5 p.m. in the same auditorium.

Lipstadt’s talk will focus on the dangers of denying the murders of millions of Jews in the Holocaust and the need to continue to battle the denier movement around the world. She has authored two books about the subject, “Denying the Holocaust” and “History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier.”

This presentation’s other sponsors are the Jewish Community Foundation of El Paso, the Jewish Federation of Greater El Paso, the Aaron Wechter Memorial Scholarship, the Shiloff Family Foundation, Felicia Rubin, and Gerald and Stanlee Rubin.

  1. Deborah Lipstadt has degrees in JEWISH History from (the Jewish) Brandeis University (named after Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis).

    In other words, far from being what could be called a historian, she is rather a trained advocate for a cause whose name I have so far repeated twice – partisan would be the kindest word to apply.

    She is on the faculty of Emory Univeristy in the department of … RELIGION. Not History.

    • So, Jett, you link your comment to a group listed by ADL as one that tries to deny the Holocaust, and/or revise the facts if the Holocaust.

      Sir, the Holocaust is a fact. Six million Jewish people we’re killed- as were others: deserters, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Gypsies, and more. This is a fact.

      Fact, sir. Fact.

    • Mr. Rucker,

      I cannot even fathom someone thinking the Holocaust us an agenda, or someone has an agenda presenting what actually happened.

      You do know that the event of the Holocaust are well documented. Not just by the allies, but by the Germans as well.

      I don’t want to be mean to you here but your comment is stupid.

    • Are you a moron, Jett? How can you say these things?

      Of course you are a scared keyboard warrior, hiding behind a fake name. Tell us who you really are so that we can avoid you.

  2. The holocaust is a hoax and is now widely accepted as such. The film denial backfired as many if these do…The plain truth is easy to see… first stop..Auschwitz…tbe sign has been CHANGED in 1989 to read 1 million…what did it say before…? 4 million…do the maths.
    With facts like this no wonder it’s all falling apart…
