Штаб имперского руководителя (рейхсляйтера) Розенберга для оккупированных восточных областей, г.г. Берлин — Киев
Создание Айнзацштаба рейхсляйтера Розенберга было санкционировано распоряжением Гитлера от 5 июля 1940 г. приказом Верховного командования Вермахта. Одной из его основных задач было «сохранение и учет бесхозного культурного массива на оккупированных восточных территориях». Айнзацштаб функционировал как отдельная самостоятельная организация, руководство ко- торой осуществляла личная канцелярия Розенберга. Структура Айнзацштаба включала управление штаба (Берлин) во главе с штатсфюрером Г. Утикалем и разветвленную систему подотделов и групп, которые входили в состав трех отде- лов. Главный организационный отдел выполнял функции секретариата и ведал кадровыми вопросами, Главный оперативный отдел занимался «учетом и сохра- нением предметов культуры на оккупированных территориях», Главный отдел особых задач организовывал выявление и вел учет предметов искусства, книжных собраний еврейского происхождения. Текущие задачи Айнзацштаба осуществляли главные рабочие группы, которые подчинялись Управлению Штаба. Главная рабочая группа «Украина», организованная 3 октября 1941 г., действовала на территории Восточной, Южной Украины и в Крыму и состояла в свою очередь из пяти рабочих групп (Киев, Харьков, Херсон, Крым с центром в Симферополе и Днепропетровск). Параллельно с рабочими группами действовали так называе- мые зондерштабы, находившиеся в подчинении Управления Айнзацштаба, кото- рые курировали сбор материалов по определенным отраслям науки и культуры (искусство, материальная культура, архивы, генеалогия, этнография, книжные собрания, библиотеки). Айнзацштаб прекратил деятельность на восточных тер- риториях Украины в конце 1943 г., на западных осенью 1944 г.
Архив Управления Айнзацштаба Розенберга был перемещен в Ратибор (юго-запад Польши). В 1945 г. составлявшие его документы были перемещены в СССР в качестве военных трофеев.
В фонде пять описей, сформированных на основе немецких подшивок документов и сгруппированных по принципу обратной хронологии (причем документы самого Айнзацштаба находятся только в первых трех из них). Представлены материалы Управления Айнзацштаба, его отделов и Группы особых задач по организации учета предметов искусства и книг еврейского происхождения; вырезки из немецких и английских газет и аналитические статьи по еврейскому вопросу; переписка с Институтом исследования еврейского вопроса во Франкфурте на Майне (о наличии предметов иудаики в Киеве и Харькове, 1942); документы, касающиеся учета вывоза книг и предметов материальной культуры (в том числе и еврейских) из Киева и Харькова; разработки из архива Главной рабочей группы «Украина» по истории иудаизма, истории евреев в Крыму и др.
