Examples of "heimatforschung"
After World War II broke out and the Slovak Republic was formed, he was appointed state secretary for German affairs. In 1939 he spoke out against the Jews, arguing that one could not wait for the state to solve the problem of the anti-German enemies but that the people should take measures themselves. In 1940 he was appointed "Führer" of the German population in Slovakia. He founded a National Socialist research institute, the "Institut für
", in Kežmarok in 1941, whose aim was to strengthen Germanic roots in Slovakia and to collaborate with similar institutes in Prague and Vienna. Members of the institute's research council included Hans Joachim Beyer (of the Reinhard-Heydrich-Stiftung, and after 1945 professor in Flensburg), Josef Hanika, Bruno Schier, Walter Gierach, and Wilhelm Weizsäcker. Karmasin is thought to have contributed to the deportation of Jews and to the "purification" of the German population, cleansing (in his words) it from "racially inferior and anti-social elements". During the Eichmann trial he was accused of having urged Eichmann to hasten the deportation of Jews, and Allied documentation contains a report from November 1939 in which Karmasin argued for the introduction of anti-Jewish legislation.
