Professor Deborah Lipstadt spent her life documenting and writing about the atrocities that happened in concentration camps during the second World War. She wrote numerous books on the subject and in 1993 she eventually published a book on holocaust deniers, a conspiracy theory that was growing in strength mainly down to a few pseudo-historians and Nazi supporters who deny the holocaust ever happened - or at best claim the deaths and gassings have been vastly over exaggerated.
Rightfully documenting the danger of denial, Lipstadt's book brought to light just how such stories take shape to become plausible to readers and creators of such literature. One of the people she named in her book was the British historian David Irving who had written multiple books on Hitler and various parts of the war who supported the notion - amongst many other things - that Hitler didn't kill Jewish people for actively being Jewish and there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz.
Irving sues the professor and her publishers for Liable in the British court system and a long trial is set in motion. Lipstadt and her team of lawyers must find a way to prove in a courtroom setting that the holocaust did happen and Irving's claims (stated in her book) are false and that he is therefore a holocaust denier.
