Denial: Film Screening and Discussion

HBL, Video Theater 2

On November 8, 2017, in remembrance of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass when Nazis attacked German Jews and their property, UConn's Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life will present a film screening of the award-winning film Denial. Guest speaker and Kristallnacht survivor Hans Laufer will provide remarks and answer questions prior to the film screening.

The film Denial is based on the acclaimed book, Denial: Holocaust History on Trial, which tells the true story of Professor Deborah E. Lipstadt’s fight against Holocaust denier David Irving over his falsification of history. Faced with a libel lawsuit in a British court, Lipstadt and her attorneys must prove that the Holocaust really happened.
