Denying the Undeniable: Holocaust Denial Today
Why do people deny the Holocaust? How can they when faced with historical evidence? Who denies the Holocaust? What motivates them? What do they gain? These are all questions and more that we will aim to answer in the latest event of our Changing Perspectives series.
We will be joined by Dr Joe Mulhall. He is one of the UK’s leading experts on far-right extremism. Head of Research at the UK’s largest anti-fascism organisation, HOPE not hate, his books include Drums in the Distance: Journeys in the Global Far Right, British Fascism After the Holocaust and The International Alternative Right (Co-Author). He has written for the Guardian, Independent and New Statesman and appears regularly on broadcast media including the BBC News at Ten, Radio 4’s Today programme, The Moral Maze and Channel 4 News, among others.
Also joining Joe is Dr David Rudrum. David is Senior Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Huddersfield, where he lectures on 20th and 21st century literature and philosophy. He has just finished writing a book entitled Trolling Before the Internet: an Offline History of Insult, Provocation, and Public Humiliation in the Literary Classics.
