Denial

We encourage all researchers to exercise caution when they use the Internet and any other media, including films, books, and journals. Our center staff, advisory board, and experts are here to assist researchers on a case-by-case basis. We consider it our obligation to orient interested individuals toward reference materials which, in our opinion, represent the best scholarship in the field of Holocaust and genocide issues.

We recommend that researchers interested in the history, psychology, and ideology of Holocaust and genocide denial should begin their investigation with the following resources:

  • Remembrance and Denial: The Case of the Armenian Genocide by Richard G. Hovannisian. Detroit: Wayne State University Press, 1999.
  • Denying the Holocaust: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory by Deborah Lipstadt. New York: The Free Press, 1993.
  • Assassins of Memory: Essays on the Denial of the Holocaust (European Perspectives: A Series in Social Thought and Cultural Criticism) by Pierre Vidal-Naquet. New York: Columbia University Press, 1993.

This list is NOT exhaustive, and will continue to be updated by center staff.

Please consult with us if you need more information about what we consider to be reliable versus unreliable sources.
