PhD Candidate Focusing in the History of the Holocaust

 

My name is Chad S.A. Gibbs and I am a graduate student in History at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I have also completed a minor in gender and women's history.  I received my master's degree in history at the University of Nebraska at Omaha and my bachelor's degree in history at the University of Wyoming. 

My research explores the geographies and social networks of resistance by Jewish prisoners at the extermination camp Treblinka.  My work makes extensive use of witness testimonies from trial transcripts to memoirs, video interviews, diaries, and other documents of history and memory.
