According to Deborah Lipstadt, critical analysis of the facts is a Holocaust denier’s worst enemy.

The current professor of modern Jewish and Holocaust studies at Emory University and former advisor to Secretary of State Madeline Albright on international religious persecution discussed the distressing variation on the classic themes of anti-Semitism in a lecture entitled “Holocaust Denial: The New Anti-Semitism” in Hollis E. Cornell Auditorium in Goldwin Smith last night. Her appearance was sponsored by numerous organizations, including the Jewish Student Union and Students for Tolerance, Awareness and Remembering Survivors (STARS). Allison Arotsky ‘09, co-president of Geiborot, Cornell’s Jewish Women’s Forum, introduced the speaker. Arotsky stressed the importance of Lipstadt’s work, saying, “Holocaust and genocide awareness in general are still very important issues, especially considering what’s going on in Darfur today.”
