In addition to researching the legacies of Nazism, Professor Niven has spent many years studying the culture and literature of East Germany, and recently published a monograph on Representations of Flight and Expulsion in East German Prose Works (Camden House, 2014). Currently, he is writing a book on Hitler and the Nazi Film Industry (Yale, 2017). At Nottingham Trent, Bill Niven supervises a number of MA and PhD students who are working on subjects connected to the work of the National Holocaust Centre and Museum, such as the memory and history of the Kindertransport, the use of testimony, and the teaching of the Holocaust at primary school level. Professor Niven was historical adviser to the recent AHRC-funded exhibition Germany’s Confrontation with the Holocaust in a Global Context, created by the University of Leeds. This exhibition was shown at the National Holocaust Centre in early 2015.
