Nazism

Introduction to the Collection

Hoover's holdings on the National Socialist period are particularly strong, including original diaries by Joseph Goebbels and Heinrich Himmler, as well as the personal photo album of Joachim von Ribbentropp. The rise of the Nazi Party is documented in the papers of Theodore Abel, which include five hundred autobiographical sketches by early members of the party. A microfilm copy of the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter-Partei Hauptarchiv (NSDAP) is available in the library.
