    Research on German Filmmakers in WWII Berlin

    Gwendolyn Dente Newbie

      I am helping friends in Germany research the connections of their now-deceased mother, Ruth Baumgarte, a famous artist in Germany.  Would the National Archives have any information about the following people -- Wolfgang Kaskeline, Kurt Rupli, Werner Haftmann, and Gustav Winter?  Ruth Baumgarte is the daughter of Kurt Rupli und Margarethe Kellner-Conrady, who never married.  Kurt Rupli worked on films as author and producer of German Culture Films and was a leading Nazi official.  Ruth also worked for the Jewish filmmaker in the animation field, Wolfgang Kaskeline.  If the National Archives do not have information on any of these people, where would you suggest I inquire further.  Thank you.
