Professor Waltzer's interests cover American social and political history, including urban, labor, and minority history, immigration and social relations in the United States and elsewhere, and modern Jewish history, including the study of anti-Semitism and of the Holocaust. His major current project is a book on The Rescue of Children and Youths at Buchenwald. In summer 2005, he was a member of the Israel Studies faculty seminar at Brandeis University, and in summer 2006 he taught in Israel. In 2008, he was among 15 international scholars brought by the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum to research in and help evaluate the newly opened Red Cross International Tracing Service Archives in Germany.
