Summary: "Martin Himler (1889-1961) emigrated from Hungary to America in 1907 and found success as a coal-mining entrepreneur, establishing the Himler Coal Company, the small town of Himlerville, Kentucky--almost completely populated by Hungarian immigrants--and a weekly newspaper, the Hungarian Miners' Journal. At the outbreak of WWII, Himler began working for the OSS with a rankof colonel and arrested and interrogated forty Hungarian Nazi war criminals. Himler's collected evidence and testimony were also used in the Nuremberg trials. Himler wrote his autobiography sometime during his later years when he retired to California but never published it. The autobiography exchanged hands amongst Himler family members and was finally donated to the Martin County Historical Society in 2007. The current manuscript includes the full text of the autobiography, an introduction by Doug Cantrell, and editing and annotations by Cathy Corbin"--
