The Holocaust Case, which ruled the gassing of Jews by Hitler was simply a fact and not reasonably subject to dispute, was featured in the movie, Never Forget, but the real story has never been told.
Now, for the first time, the true facts are revealed by William John Cox, the public-interest lawyer who represented a Nazi death camp survivor and sued the radical organizations that denied the Holocaust. In retaliation, Cox was sued for defamation by the reclusive leader of a shadowy consortium that earned millions peddling historical lies and bizarre theories of racial superiority. His recollection of these matters is supplemented by official court records.
In a poignant personal memoir, the author details his path from an orphan named Billy Jack to a representative of a secret client in the publication of the suppressed Dead Sea Scrolls.
Along his circuitous life path, Cox meets another orphan one who could never forget the extermination of his entire family by the Nazis. The survivor had been taunted by the deniers to prove the truth of the Holocaust. Together, the two accept the challenge and make history.
Cox discusses his unconventional practice of law, in which he undertook these landmark cases without charging a fee, and tells why he did it. He derives lessons from the Holocaust and explains how the insights relate to current social and political conditions.
