UCLA Faculty on Tour

M. Gregory Kendrick
Department of History
Greg Kendrick directed the UCLA Freshman Cluster Program and was a Professor of Modern European History for twenty years before his recent retirement in 2016. Before his tenure at UCLA, he was also one of the German historians who worked with Steven Spielberg’s Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation to collect and catalogue some 55,000-survivor testimonies. His areas of expertise are in the cultural politics of Germany from 1871-1945, the Holocaust, the relationship between culture producers and the Bolsheviks in the early Soviet Union from 1918-1939, and historical archetypes of heroism and villainy in the West. He also has an abiding personal interest in the D-Day landings as his father was in the first wave at Omaha Beach in 1944.
