Remembering those who accomplished great things in the arts, sciences and politics
Deborah E. Lipstadt
Very gratified that my TED talk on truth and lies has crossed the 900,000 viewers mark. Particularly pleased that is being used as a source by students, teachers and others
“There are facts, there are opinions, and there are lies,” says historian Deborah Lipstadt, telling the remarkable story of her research into Holocaust deniers — and their deliberate distortion of history.

I am so grateful to the United States of America, where Jewish people came from all walks of life and reinvented themselves. From the pictures above that passed away this year, to the video on Holocaust denial about how truth is truth, and we cannot trust people that may look respectable, we need proof, research, and facts.

So blessed that my parents brought me to this country, they were a blank slate, but they wanted me to know my Jewish identity, they left everything behind. Thank God I met my husband, and now our children are excited about the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashana. All the talk in our community is about Shofar, honey cake, and everyone wishing each other a sweet new year.

God Bless America for standing by Israel,
Shana Tova!

Gen. Zvika Haimovich, commander of the IAF’s Aerial Defense Division. The base, located within the IAF’s School of Aerial Defense, will house dozens of American soldiers, permanently stationed in Israel as part of a task force. (Uhm. Under Trump.)
