Storyline

This film tells the story of Mel Mermelstein, a Jewish survivor of the Nazi Holocaust who was angered and horrified at the gall of the Institute for Historical Review, a neo nazi organization dedicated to claiming the Holocaust never happened. Although itching to challenge them, he is initially disuaded by the fact that the organization's standard tactic is to post a reward to anyone who can prove the Holocaust's occurance, then ignore all petitioners and claim that no one has presented any proof, thus ensuring themselves publicity and credibility. That reluctance is removed when a friend notes that this kind of lying represents a breach of contract, leaving the organization open to a lawsuit. Using this bold legal strategy, Mermelstein presents his proof, the IHR takes the bait and Mermelstein takes them to court. Now, Mermelstein must battle the neo nazis not only in court, but outside as well as they try to intimidate him to drop a case that would lead the legal recongition of the ...

Quotes

Little boy in the group of children visiting Mel's Holocaust survivor art display: Why did the Nazi's do all of this, Mr. Mermelstein?
Mel Mermelstein: Ah, that's a good question. You see, this is an old political trick. If you can find a scapegoat, somebody you can blame for all of the problems, and if you can get people to believe that their lives would be better if those people were gone, then that's a way of getting power.

Those that hate...
20 May 2007 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

For those that hate, there were never enough minorities tortured, hung, gassed or stuffed into ovens to satisfy their aversion. By means of their denial that the holocaust existed, or their statements that events were "over-exaggerated", they aim to further insult and injure the survivors and descendants of those who suffered Hitlers "final solution".

There was a time after the war that we said "never again"! Never again would we allow genocide to occur anywhere on this planet. How soon we forget our pledge. Genocide and ethnic cleansing are still very much a reality, and just as it did in the early days of Hitlers Germany, it goes on mostly unfettered and continues today in places like Rwanda, and Malaysia. At the very least we need to send a message to those that hate and commit acts of wholesale murder.

Hitler still exists. His legacy resides in men like president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, who called for the destruction of Israel, and who goes virtually unopposed by the world community. It is no surprise that Ahmadinejad is a holocaust denier himself, and has even called for conferences in an attempt to question the events in Nazi Germany. He has called for Jews and Christians to be forced to distinguish themselves by wearing colored badges. Very reminiscent to Nazi Germany's requiring the Jews to wear the Star of David. Mostly Ahmadinejad is a man of words rather than actions at present time. However, there once was a time when Hitler was confined to spewing his hate in the beer halls of Bavaria. Do we ever learn? I have found that hate doesn't have to have logic or reason, it just has to exist. No matter where hate exists, no matter what race or religion it is aimed at, it must not go unopposed. These men and their ideas must be stopped. Today they come for your neighbor, but perhaps tomorrow they will come for you.
