These declassified seized German records were deposited at the Military Records Branch of the United States General Services Administration. They cover records of the National Socialist German Labor Party, its affiliated organizations, and territorial divisions. They include records on resettlement kept by the Deutsches Ausland-Institut in Stuttgart and agencies under Himmler, records of the Reichsstudentenfuhrung, and the National Sozialistischer Studenten Bund. This is a valuable aid for study of the German administrative and political history of the 1930s: the mechanisms of political control on the local level, the social background of local political leaders, and the development of National Socialist ideology. It offers an insight into university life after 1933 and the changes in the intellectual, political, and social views of students over a prolonged period of time. The collection also covers activities such as political indoctrination, propaganda operations, Jewish persecution, and foreign labor recruitment.
