Martin C. Dean papers
The Martin C. Dean papers consist of photocopies of case documentation prepared for Martin Dean by the German prosecuting authorities in Stuttgart, Germany, to assist him in preparing an expert witness statement for a case against Alfons Götzfrid (b. 1919 in Rastatt/Poretschje Ukraine), who served in the Security Police in Lemberg (Lviv) during World War II and who was tried in Stuttgart in 1999 on charges of accessory to murder at the Majdanek concentration camp. The files are entitled “Staatsanwaltschaft Frankenthal 9 Js 70-65 Walter Kehrer, Handakten Bd. I thru V and Sachakten Bd. I thru XV,” and they document a war crimes case against Walter Kehrer from the 1960s and 1970s. Kehrer was born in 1912 in the German Transcaucasian settlement at Helenendorf (Goygol, Azerbaijan), moved to Germany in 1930, and became a member of the Nazi party in 1932. He served as an auxiliary with Einsatzgruppe D, with the so-called Caucasian Company, and in the Office of the Commander of the Security Police (KdS) in Lemberg (Lviv). He was accused of atrocities at the Kamionki I, Borki-Wielki, and Lemberg-Janowskastrasse concentration camps.
