The past few years have seen a number of demonstration projects arrive on the Internet for use as pedagogical tools in college-level instruction. One such project is the Holocaust Denial on Trial site, developed as part of Emory University's Witness to the Holocaust Program and the Institute for Jewish Studies. Visitors unfamiliar with the case will want to begin with the background section, which outlines the nature of the case, along with answering some basic questions about the participants in the trial. The site contains literally hundreds of primary documents related to the widely discussed British court case in which David Irving (a British Holocaust denier) sued Professor Deborah Lipstadt and her British publisher for libel. The site begins with the complete text of the judgment against Irving, and follows with full-text transcripts spanning from the January 2000 opening statements to closing remarks in March 2000. This site provides an in-depth look into one of the most riveting court trials regarding the nature of Holocaust scholarship (and libel), as well as serving as a well-conceived online educational tool.
