   schema:reviewBody ""Holocaust Denial and the Law relates how courts in four countries (Canada, France, Germany, and the United States) resolved the dilemmas posed by Holocaust-denial litigation, specifically the tension between adhering to principles of legal fairness and protecting the Holocaust from its deniers. It covers criminal prosecutions, civil litigation, and also how, in the United States, student editors had to decide whether to run ads denying the Holocaust. The book focuses on three manifestations of the central tension: questions of proof, implications of a ruling in favor of the deniers, and the potential damage that refusing to prosecute Holocaust deniers may cause to society at large. The book concludes that a given country's resolution of these dilemmas turns on its specific legal traditions and historical experiences."--BOOK JACKET." ;
