Koen Smilde, MA


As editor-in-chief of ‘Adopt a Diary’, I am responsible for the organisation and supervision of the volunteers who transcribe the war diaries from the NIOD archives to make them more accessible. I also make sure that the transcriptions meet all editorial and linguistic requirements.

My research interest is in totalitarian ideologies and how societies in Europe deal with their legacy. I am also very interested in the representation of World War II in popular culture.
