A libel trial began in Britain involving a historian who believes there is no evidence that 6 million Jews were killed by the Nazis and a professor who called him a “dangerous spokesman for Holocaust denial.” David Irving is suing Deborah Lipstadt and her publisher, Penguin Books, for the alleged libel that appears in her 1993 book, “Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory.”
