Also in Peter R. Black research collection
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 Also includes a bound copy of unpublished research papers written by Black in the early 1970s, including "The SS in Perspective" (a history and historiography of the SS), on "The Resistance that Never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.
The Peter Black papers consist of writings, Kaltenbrunner research, Office of Special Investigations reports, expert witness case material, and source material documenting Dr. Black’s career as a Holocaust scholar. The collection particularly emphasizes the denaturalization and deportation cases for which Dr. Black served as an expert witness in the United States, Canada, and England and the roles of local ethnic German collaborators in the Holocaust in German-occupied Eastern Europe.
