About

The Author

I am a British female PhD student; my current research focuses on the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum's adaptation to the digital museum. I am also Administrator for the Holocaust Research Institute at Royal Holloway, University of London; a Freelance Educator for the Holocaust Educational Trust; and Co-Editor of the Auschwitz Museum's online magazine, Memoria. I am also a voluntary proofreader for the Museum. For three years, I was a Regional Ambassador for the Holocaust Educational Trust and have also previously volunteered for the Wiener Library, the National Holocaust Centre and Museum and the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust.

Why 'A Week in Auschwitz'?

I began this blog in late June 2012, whilst completing the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum's International Summer Academy. The course takes place on-site at the former camp in Oświęcim, Poland, for a period of five days; therefore, I actually did spend almost a week in Auschwitz itself. I wasn't sure if the blog would continue for very long, but as it has grown and people have come to recognise the name, I have decided not to change it.

This blog was shortlisted in the 'Education' category at the UK Blog Awards 2016, and longlisted in the UK Blog Awards 2017. I would like to thank all readers and followers for their unwavering support.
