In this series the author researched the origins and development of the Low German (Plattdeutsch) language. He compared it to High German (modern German), Dutch, and Old High German. Rempel also traced its use in the Mennonite culture. The records consist of notes, manuscripts, and cards. Most of the information is in Dutch, Low German, and High German.
This series consists of a variety of material relating to World War Two. Of special interest is the material produced by the German army such as records made by Karl Stumpp and daily reports made by the Sicherheitsdienst (SD), or security service. Rempel's collection in this area focused on the German occupation of the Soviet Union areas. Rempel also collected material regarding the Jewish background and situation during that time. The records he collected are mostly photocopied books and articles. Manuscripts, card indexes and notes by the author also are prominent.
