Abstract:

The Lorant collection represents significant aspects of Lorant's careers as filmmaker and pictorial history book author; his better known expertise as a picture magazine editor is less thoroughly documented. The core of the collection comprises photographs he collected of German history from the Bismarck era to the Nuremberg Trials (ca. 1871-1946). A smaller portion of the photo holdings consists of stills from Lorant's silent films and personal photos of himself, friends, and family. An extensive correspondence from his American years is primarily concerned with book projects.

Series I consists of photos used in Lorant's book Sieg Heil: An Illustrated History of Germany from Bismarck to Hitler; Series II-IV contain historical photos that Lorant did not use in this book. Series III has photos of a topical subject nature featuring Berlin (1869-1916), Weimar cultural life, poverty and inflation, anti-semitism, collages by John Heartfield, Nazi activities and assemblies, and Weimar politicians and cabinets.

Of the four boxes of biographical photos in Series VI, nearly three feature Adolf Hitler, arranged in two subsections: chronological and subject. Numerous Hitler images appear in Series II when associated with specific historical events such as his meeting with Prime Minister Chamberlain of Great Britain. Other Nazi leaders, particularly Hermann Göring, are well represented, as are the German royal family, and various figures from politics, the military, the arts, and science.

The correspondence in Series VIII, with a few exceptions, dates from Lorant's arrival in America in 1940. The bulk of it pertains to his book projects on American history and the American presidency, though a considerable number of items involve Lorant's pre-war experiences and friends. Series IX is a miscellany of Lorant's books and articles, review clippings, an autobiographical manuscript, a capsulization of articles in the Nazi newspaper Volkischer Beobachter, and several award plaques. Included are two video taped interviews with Lorant, 1983, 1989.
