Deborah Lipstadt

London, UK

Had the pleasure of listening to American historian Deborah Lipstadt last night.

As many of you will know, she was the author of the 1993 book "Denying The Holocaust". The book is about the "historian" David Irving who once claimed that more people died in Ted Kennedy's car at Chappaquidick than in the gas chambers at Auschwitz. More recently she has written "History on Trial". This is her story about her day in court with Irving.

Deborah spoke about the recent event at the Oxford Union. You can read about it on her Blog here

Yes, a very interesting blog - thank you for drawing our attention to it. I didn't know that quote from Irving re TK's car - how disgusting and what a piece of scum he is.

He's lower than scum

What a truly moronic statement by Irving. Really moronic.

This is why this trash must never be given a public platform.

The Oxford Union ought to be bloody ashamed of themselves.
