INSPIRATION
'Denial' brings Emory professor's battle for historical truth to the big screen
With the release of the new feature film "Denial," Emory professor Deborah Lipstadt reflects upon her landmark legal battle against a Holocaust denier and Emory's support as she fought to uphold historical truth. Lipstadt (right) is portrayed by Academy Award-winning actress Rachel Weisz in the film, which opens Oct. 7 in Atlanta.

 

RESOURCES
