Charlotte Kiechel is a historian of the 20th century Europe with research expertise in the history of decolonization, human rights, and Holocaust and Genocide Studies. A PhD Candidate in the History Department, she is completing a dissertation which uncovers Holocaust memory’s role in the anticolonial campaigns of the global Cold War. “The Politics of Comparison” is poised to the first monograph that establishes the alliance between Holocaust memory, on the one hand, and the global production of anticolonial thought, on the other. DAAD, Foundation de la mémoire de la Shoah, P.E.O., and the Fox Fellowship have all supported her past research.
