This could be a useful 'introduction' to the later Heidegger. The course is from 1941, I believe. It is very short and what Heidegger seeks to do in this course is to swiftly articulate what he means by 'The Event' or 'Ereignis'. I'd definitely acquire this if you're having trouble with the 'Contributions'. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0253212154, Paperback)

Basic Concepts, one of the first texts to appear in English from the critical later period of Martin Heidegger's thought, strikes out in new directions. First published in German in 1981 as Grundbegriffe (volume 51 of Martin Heidegger's Collected Works), it is the text of a lecture course that Heidegger gave at Freiburg in the winter semester of 1941 during the phase of his thinking known as the "turning." In this translation, Heidegger shifted his attention from the problem of the meaning of being to the question of the truth of being. In this lucid translation by Gary E. Aylesworth, Basic Concepts provides a concise introduction to Heidegger's later thought.
