Movie Night – “Denial”
Wednesday, November 20, 2019
Join us for a glass of wine and a light dinner, followed by a movie and discussion led by Rabbi Simon.
On Rosh Hashanah, Rabbi Simon spoke about antisemitism in Europe and America, historically and today. Holocaust denial has been an ugly voice of antisemitism, and this film tells the real-life story of Deborah Lipstadt as she took on Holocaust denier David Irving in court. As we watch the movie, we’ll discuss the danger of conspiracy theories against the Jews throughout history.
Deborah Lipstadt is a historian and author of “Denying the Holocaust, History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier” and “Antisemitism Here and Now.” She will be the speaker at the Tampa Jewish Community Centers and Federation’s Annual President’s Dinner in January.
