Fighting for the Past: Lessons from the David Irving Trial
Henderson, A. Scott
Social Education, v72 n6 p301-303 Oct 2008
This article offers lessons from the David Irving trial. These lessons about Holocaust denial allow educators to identify how deniers violate certain scholarly tenets. This also serves as a safeguard against legitimizing deniers' efforts, while also reinforcing important principles of historical inquiry. (Contains 11 notes.)
