André Gerolymatos is a Greek-Canadian professor at Simon Fraser University, and holds the Hellenic Canadian Congress of British Columbia Chair in Hellenic Studies.

Gerolymatos is the author of a number of books on Greek history, including 2004's Red Acropolis, Black Terror: The Greek Civil War and the Origins of Soviet-American Rivalry, 1943-1949, which argues that the Greek Civil War was the first engagement of the United States in the Cold War. In 2005, Gerolymatos was interviewed for the documentary film The 11th Day: Crete 1941, a film which documents the Battle of Crete and the resistance that followed.
