Peter R. Black research collection

Collection Summary
Consists of correspondence, interview transcripts, notes, memoir materials, and other research materials gathered by Peter R. Black in preparation for his 1981 Columbia University PhD dissertation, "Ideological Commitment and Personal Politics in the Third Reich: The Case of Ernst Kaltenbrunner." Also includes a bound copy of unpublished research papers written by Black in the early 1970s, including "The SS in Perspective" (a history and historiography of the SS), on "The Resistance that Never Was" (a study of the failure of any anti-Allied Nazi resistance movement), and the project proposal for Dr. Black's paper on Kaltenbrunner. Also includes a postcard written by Kaltenbrunner to his son in 1944 and audiocassettes containing interviews with Wilhelm Höttl, Hansjörg Kaltenbrunner, Otto Holzinger, and Leopold Tavs, conducted by Peter Black, ca. 1977.
Dr. Peter Black, Senior Historian, donated his materials to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in 2010, with an additional accretion in 2016.
