Museum Press Kit

"We welcome Deborah Lipstadt’s appointment to this important position, especially in an era of rising antisemitism and Holocaust denial and distortion. A preeminent Holocaust historian, she won a landmark court case against Holocaust denier David Irving that was deeply meaningful to Holocaust survivors worldwide. Her background as scholar, teacher, author, and speaker makes her an ideal choice at this critical moment."

Sara J. Bloomfield, Director, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum
