Join us for a special evening as we honor Nancy Kennedy Barnett & Jim Barnett for their dedication to HERC and our community.
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Deborah E. Lipstadt, Dorot professor of Holocaust Studies at Emory University has published and taught about the Holocaust for close to 40 years. The author of six books and numerous articles, she is probably most widely known because of the libel lawsuit brought against her (1996) by David Irving for having called him a Holocaust denier. Irving was then arguably the world’s leading denier. After a ten-week trial in London (2000), in an overwhelming victory for Professor Lipstadt, the judge found Irving to be a “neo-Nazi polemicist” who “perverts” history and engages in “racist” and “anti-Semitic” discourse. Professor Lipstadt’s book, ANTISEMITISM: HERE AND NOW, was published in January, 2019.
