LIPSTADT PART OF U.S. AUSCHWITZ DELEGATION
Deborah Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies, was a member of the presidential delegation to Poland that attended the 60 th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau on Thursday, Jan. 27.
The delegation was led by Vice President Dick Cheney and included Lipstadt, Nobel Peace Prize-winning author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, and others.
Lipstadt is author of Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory , the first full-length study of those who attempt to deny the Holocaust.
