The Future of Denial by Deborah E. Lipstadt

“Many people worry that without the survivors, there will not be enough evidence to “prove” what happened at Auschwitz. When I was compelled to defend myself against charges of libel brought by Holocaust denier David Irving, without relying on survivors as witnesses, we amassed a massive cache of documentary, testimonial, and material evidence about Auschwitz. Judge Charles Gray of the UK High Court of Justice said the evidence conclusively demonstrated that Irving’s claims that Auschwitz-Birkenau was not a death camp fell far short of the standard to be expected of a conscientious historian. Gray concluded that “no objective, fair-minded historian would have serious cause to doubt” the existence of gas chambers at Auschwitz. The four different judges who heard Irving’s appeals agreed.”
