Robert Jan Van Pelt Robert Jan Van Pelt (School of Architecture, Univ. Waterloo, Ontario)
Robert Jan van Pelt is University Professor and Professor of Architecture at the University of Waterloo, Canada. Since the late 1980s his main research focus has been the construction and development of Auschwitz. He was the chairman of the team that developed the Strategy for the State Museum at Auschwitz which became the basis for an international agreement of 1997. Having become interested in the way Holocaust deniers falsify the evidence of the gassings in Auschwitz, van Pelt became involved with the fight against Holocaust denial in the mid 1990s. He appeared in Errol Morris’s movie Mr. Death, The Rise and Fall of Fred Leuchter Jr., and he served as an expert witness in the Irving vs. Lipstadt libel trial. His books include Architectural Principles in the Age of Historicism, co-authored with Carroll William Westfall, Auschwitz, co-authored with Debórah Dwork, and Holocaust: A History, also co-authored with Dwork. His expert report submitted to the British High Court and became the basis for The Case for Auschwitz: Evidence from the Irving Trial. He recently completed, again in collaboration with Dwork, The Refugees’ Globe: Jews in Search of Safety (in press, to be published by W.W. Norton in April 2009).
