To commemorate Holocaust Remembrance Day, we present this powerful film. Based on the acclaimed book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier, DENIAL recounts Deborah E. Lipstadt's legal battle for historical truth against David Irving, who accused her of libel when she declared him a Holocaust denier. In the English legal system, the burden of proof is on the accused, therefore it was up to Lipstadt and her legal team to prove the essential truth that the Holocaust occurred.

This documentary tells the story of the recruiting process of the Federal Army, circa 1862. While the story could apply to any Northern State, this film focuses on Monmouth County’s Camp Vredenburgh and the 14th NJ Volunteer Infantry. This production was recorded on location at significant historical sites throughout New Jersey and at the Hanover Junction Train Station in Pennsylvania. While scenes were outlined and narration was scripted, all conversational dialogue is improvised, showing the historic caliber of the living historians and actors.

Tom Burke, author and producer, will introduce the film and conduct a Q & A after the film, which runs about 35 minutes.
