Professor Deborah E. Lipstadt is the Dorot Associate Professor of Modern Jewish and Holocaust Studies at Emory University in Atlanta. Her latest book, Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory, is the first full-length study of those who attempt to deny the Holocaust. The book has met with wide acclaim, and was declared by The New York Times to be one of the notable books of 1993. She is writing a book about the impact of the American experience on the values of ethnic and religious groups. Professor Lipstadt was an historical consultant to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, where she participated in designing the section of the Permanent Exhibition dedicated to the American Response to the Holocaust. She is a member of the Council’s Committee on Conscience. Professor Lipstadt has written the critically acclaimed Beyond Belief: The American Press and the Coming of the Holocaust (Free Press/Macmillan, 1986, 1993). The book, which examines how the American press covered the persecution of European Jewry between 1933 and 1945, addresses the question of “what did the American public know and when did they know it?” She has taught at the University of California at Los Angeles and Occidental College, as well as at the University of Washington at Seattle. Dr. Lipstadt has participated in the Konrad Adenauer Foundation’s Jewish-German exchange program, and has visited Germany at that government’s request to consult on methods of teaching Jewish history and the Holocaust, particularly in former East Germany. She has lectured at universities in the United States, England, Canada, Australia, and Israel, and frequently visited the former Soviet Union, where she has lectured on the history of Soviet antisemitism. Professor Lipstadt is often called on by the media to analyze matters of contemporary and Jewish interest. She has contributed to and has been quoted in a variety of newspapers and magazines, and has appeared on CNN, Sixty Minutes, The Today Show, Good Morning America, National Public Radio’s Fresh Air, and The Charlie Rose Show, among others. Because she refuses to debate Holocaust deniers, she has declined appearances on a number of national television programs.
