Emory University historian and professor Deborah Lipstadt will be in Chicago to discuss the trial of a Nazi war criminal and perceptions of the Holocaust.

The lecture is scheduled for Monday at the University of Illinois at Chicago. The event is to honor retiring UIC professor Matthew Lippman.

University officials say Lipstadt will discuss the post-World War II trial of Adolf Eichmann, a Nazi war criminal who facilitated the deportations of millions of Jews to Nazi extermination camps and brought the Holocaust to the center of global attention.

The lecture will also focus on her most recent book titled, "The Eichmann Trial: Looking Back After 50 Years."

Admission is free.
