‘Denial’ film playing locally

The new film, “Denial,” is playing at multiple Wisconsin theaters.

When university Professor Deborah E. Lipstadt includes World War II historian David Irving in a book about Holocaust deniers, Irving accuses her of libel and sparks a legal battle for historical truth. With the burden of proof placed on the accused, Lipstadt and her legal team fight to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.

Lipstadt has visited Wisconsin to speak on her work and the film. Critics’ reviews of the film have been generally positive.
