PROFESSOR LIPSTADT'S TRIAL
The aftermath of Professor Lipstadt's smashing victory has been stunning. She received an honorary degree from Yeshiva University in NY, and traveled to Israel where she was received as a heroine, meeting with Prime Minister Barak and other government officials and receiving an invitation to teach in 2001-2002 at the Hebrew University, an alma mater of hers. Later in the summer, Professor Lipstadt traveled to England to the Remembering for the Future 2000 conference on the holocaust where she gave one of the plenaries. And, at Emory, she was honored by the Program in Law and Religion, together with the Institute of Jewish Studies, at a joint lecture given with Rabbi N. Lamm, President of Yeshiva University. Almost 1000 people attended, quite overwhelming the Emory administration. She is now working on a book version of her trial.
