Dr Simone Gigliotti

Personal profile

Simone Gigliotti is Senior Lecturer in Holocaust Studies in the Department of History. At Royal Holloway, she is affiliated with the Holocaust Research Institute, the Centre for the GeoHumanities, and the Centre for Oratory and Rhetoric. 

Her research focuses on the victim and survivor experience in oral, written, visual and geographical accounts, and exploring how these accounts often intersect with, and differ from, perpetrator, humanitarian and other witnessing perspectives. A StoryMap of Simone's publications and papers indicates the geographic and thematic breadth of her evolving research interests.

Her current projects include a monograph about Jewish refugees and displaced persons from Nazi-era to post-war Europe that brings together a disparate range of historical sources, geographic literature, and cinematic imagery, Enough of this Europe: the Holocaust and the Cinema of the Displaced, among book chapters and journal articles. She is finalising two co-edited projects for publication in 2020: The Wiley Companion to the Holocaust and The Holocaust in the 21st Century: Relevance and Challenges in the Digital Age (Lessons and Legacies, Volume XIV).
