In her acclaimed 1993 book Denying the Holocaust, Deborah Lipstadt called David Irving, a prolific writer of books on World War II, “one of the most dangerous spokespersons for Holocaust denial.” The following year, after Lipstadt’s book was published in the United Kingdom, Irving led a libel suit against Lipstadt and her publisher. She prepared her defense with the help of a first-rate team of solicitors, historians, and experts, and a dramatic trial unfolded. Denial, previously published as History on Trial, is Lipstadt’s riveting, blow- by-blow account of this singular legal battle, which resulted in a formal denunciation of a Holocaust denier that crippled the movement for years to come. Lipstadt’s victory was proclaimed on the front page of major news- papers around the world, such as The Times (UK), which declared that “history has had its day in court and scored a crushing victory.”
Eva Menasses Bericht über einen Jahrhundertprozess Der Prozess, der in London im Januar 2000 beginnt, sucht seinesgleichen. Ohne Zeitzeugen, mit erstklassigen Historikern als Gutachtern, steht in gewisser Hinsicht der Holocaust vor Gericht. David Irving, von der amerikanischen Historikerin Deborah Lipstadt »einer der gefährlichsten Holocaust-Leugner« genannt, klagt seine Sicht der Dinge vor Gericht ein. Während er die Existenz der Gaskammern weiterhin bestreitet, fühlt er sich von Lipstadt verleumdet und macht sein Recht auf Meinungsfreiheit geltend. In Großbritannien liegt bei Verleumdungsklagen die Beweislast nicht beim Kläger, sondern beim Beklagten. Die Verteidigung hat daher einige der wichtigsten Holocaust-Experten der Welt aufgeboten, um einerseits Irvings skrupellosen Umgang mit Fakten, andererseits den systematischen Charakter der Ermordung der europäischen Juden durch die Nazis zu beweisen. Eva Menasse hat den Prozess in London über Monate verfolgt. Sie porträtiert Zeugen, Richter und Verteidiger in einem Verfahren, in dem noch einmal pedantisch nachgerechnet wurde, wie viele Menschen auf welche Weise ermordet wurden. Und ihr Interesse gilt David Irving, dem intellektuellen Anstifter eines neuen Rechtsradikalismus und Rassismus. Die Autorin zeigt seine Winkelzüge, seine Argumente und zeichnet darin das Gesicht des Revisionismus. Im April 2000 wurde das Urteil über David Irving gesprochen. Die Urteilsschrift umfasst über 300 Seiten. Es ist ein historisches Urteil.

Der ehemalige SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolf Eichmann gilt als einer der Hauptverantwortlichen für die »Endlösung« der Juden in Europa. Der Prozess gegen ihn fand 1961 in Jerusalem statt. Hannah Arendts Prozessbericht wurde von ihr 1964 als Buch publiziert und brachte eine Lawine ins Rollen: Es stieß bei seinem Erscheinen auf heftige Ablehnung in Israel, Deutschland und in den USA– und wurde zu einem Klassiker wie kaum ein anderes vergleichbares Werk zur Zeitgeschichte und ihrer Deutung.
The denial of the Holocaust has no more credibility than the assertion that the earth is flat. Yet there are those who insist that the death of six million Jews in Nazi concentration camps is nothing but a hoax perpetrated by a powerful Zionist conspiracy. Sixty years ago, such notions were the province of pseudohistorians who argued that Hitler never meant to kill the Jews, and that only a few hundred thousand died in the camps from disease; they also argued that the Allied bombings of Dresden and other cities were worse than any Nazi offense, and that the Germans were the “true victims” of World War II. For years, those who made such claims were dismissed as harmless cranks operating on the lunatic fringe. But as time goes on, they have begun to gain a hearing in respectable arenas, and now, in the first full-scale history of Holocaust denial, Deborah Lipstadt shows how—despite tens of thousands of living witnesses and vast amounts of documentary evidence—this irrational idea not only has continued to gain adherents but has become an international movement, with organized chapters, “independent” research centers, and official publications that promote a “revisionist” view of recent history. Lipstadt shows how Holocaust denial thrives in the current atmosphere of value-relativism, and argues that this chilling attack on the factual record not only threatens Jews but undermines the very tenets of objective scholarship that support our faith in historical knowledge. Thus the movement has an unsuspected power to dramatically alter the way that truth and meaning are transmitted from one generation to another.
