Edwin Black’s research for the JTA four-part investigative series, “Hitler’s carmaker,” involved the review of documents at Georgetown University; Georgia State University; Henry Ford Museum; Kettering University; National Archives repositories in Chicago and Washington; New York Public Library Special Manuscript Collections; Yale University Sterling Memorial Library and other repositories in the United States and Germany. In addition, he had access to confidential FBI files obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, period media reports from both Germany and America, secondary literature and other materials researched to produce his just-released book “Internal Combustion: How Corporations and Governments Addicted the World to Oil and Derailed the Alternatives.” His sources also included the books: “General Motors and the Nazis” by Henry A. Turner; “Sloan Rules” by David Farber and “Working for the Enemy” by Reinhold Billstein, Karola Fings, Anita Kugler and Nicholas Levis.
