Andy Pearce works across all of the UCL Centre for Holocaust Education’s CPD programmes, and is involved in the Centre’s research activities. He is one of the lead authors of our national research into students’ knowledge and understanding and is engaged in various academic projects.

Andy has worked in the field for over a decade having taught history and politics in London secondary schools and completed his doctorate at Royal Holloway’s Holocaust Research Institute. Over the years he has collaborated with various institutions and organisations, including: authoring The Wiener Library’s travelling exhibition Never Again? Thinking About the Holocaust ; helping to catalogue the Imperial War Museum’s Moscati Collection; and being commissioned by the BBC to write their iWonder guide ‘Remembering genocide: Are we doing it right?‘

Andy’s outreach work has seen him provide consultancy for the UK delegation to the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), the Prime Minister’s Holocaust Commission, and appear on Sky News. He also recently participated in a panel discussion on public memory and the Second World War for the Imperial War Museum.
