Amber joined us as the second Amy Buller Scholar in September 2017. Amber has been studying at Royal Holloway, University of London since 2013, where she was recently awarded a First-Class BA degree in History, and is currently working towards a MA in Holocaust Studies researching the role of historians as witnesses in Holocaust denial trials. The award of the Amy Buller Scholarship at Cumberland Lodge has given Amber the opportunity to undertake a PhD and further her research into the changing relationship between the prosecutor and the historian in international criminal tribunals from the Nuremberg Trials 1945-46 to the present day.
Amber has previously volunteered at the British Heart Foundation and at The Jewish Museum, London, where she currently gives weekly talks on artefacts from the Holocaust.
In her spare time, Amber is a keen sportswoman, having represented her home county, Isle of Wight, at athletics and cross-country running. She is a member of the University of London Boat Club where she has rowed at a national level and will be undertaking the role of Club Secretary for 2017/18. In 2014, Amber achieved a Gold Duke of Edinburgh, and she also plays both the Cornet and Viola.
