13 lined pages, double-sided, with 1 loose page folded in half and stapled to front inside cover. Soft blue cover, bound with staples. Document is an exercise book. 'Adelene Exercise Book 1D' printed on cover, with insignia of a triangular stone covered in vines. Loose page stapled to inside cover is a handwritten copy of 'RECORD OF MALE INTERNEES in internment camp' form, filled out by Gustave Bauer, dated September 16, 1940. Form concludes with section in which Gustave requests release from internment in order to continue training in his trade of cabinet-making. The rest of the notebook contains handwritten lyrics to songs in German and English, all relating to internment. The final section is a handwritten text for a cabaret titled 'Ein Brief Eines Internierten' (A Letter of Interned [trad.]), credited to Eddy Klein. Inside back cover contains log of Gustave's places and dates of internment, and travel in England and Canada. On back cover, arithmetical tables are printed. Narrative: Document was donated by Eudice Bauer, the wife of Gustave Bauer. Gustave was born in 1924 in Hamburg, Germany, and was on vacation in Denmark with his mother Anna and brother Werner when the Nuremberg Laws of 1935 were passed. They decided not to return to Germany, and went to stay with Anne's sister in Brussels, Belgium. Gustave's father Manfred was arrested for smuggling money out of Germany and spent the next two years in prison. Manfred joined his family in Brussels when he was released from prison in 1937. In 1940, immediately before Germany occupied Belgium, all German males born before 1924 were ordered to register. Manfred and Werner were sent to France, where they were interned. On their way to France to join them, Gustave and his mother were arrested and sent to England on the last boat to leave Belgium before it was occupied. In England, Gustave spent time in Folkestone, Pentonville Prison, Kempton Park, and Douglas, Isle of Man. He was in England from May 19 to July 4, 1940. IOn July 4, 1940 he was sent to Canada on the S.S. Sobiesky with other German nationals as prisoners of war.He was in Camp T, in Trois-Rivières, Quebec, from July 15 to August 12, 1940. He was thenmoved to Camp B, in New Brunswick, and then in 1941 was sent with other Jewish internees to Camp I, Île aux Noix, Quebec. He was sponsored for release in 1942, and his mother joined him in Canada in 1947. His father was deported from Drancy to Majdanek in 1943. It is unknown what happened to Gustave's brother Werner once he was sent to France. Neither man survived the war.

Notes
Cover with drawing of an elephant and the words ' Big Boy' framed in gold. Space for pupil to write their name and grade. Pages are ruled in blue printed lines. Fifteen pages contain writing. This book belonged to Gustav Bauer in 1940 for his studies. There is a cartoon of Hitler on page three. The booklet is titled 'War - Krieg - Guerre". Most of the texts are songs and poems from Camp B. It was graded by a third party person in pink pencil crayon, crossing out some of Gus' passages and labelling them 'enemy propaganda,' 'not nescessary,' and 'military secret.' A piece of newspaper is used as a bookmark. It is an article from 1941 about Vichy improving conditions for alien prisoners. Gustav kept it in the interest of his father and older brother. Narrative: Gustave was born in 1924 in Hamburg, Germany, and was on vacation in Denmark with his mother Anna and brother Werner when the Nuremberg Laws of 1935 were passed. They decided not to return to Germany, and went to stay with Anne's sister in Brussels, Belgium.

Notes
Over 50 pages. Soft cover, paper bound with adhesive, and sewn together. The cover is black, and the interior pages are yellow, with grey pencil handwritten entries. There is also some red colour pencil on the pages as well. The interior pages have a grid pattern on them, and the edges have black and red on them. The notebook belonged to a Latvian man named Elmars Rozite (born circa 1924-1927) who was the donor's father. Narrative: Notebook contains some diary entries in Latvian (being translated). The first entry is entitled "Leaving for Germany" and is dated October 4, 1943. Elmars mentions leaving Riga and spending three days on a train to Germany. Elmars Rozite was born 1925-04-11 in Riga, Latvia. He learned German in school and was trained as a carpenter. He left for Germany in October 1943. Upon arrival he spent some time at Schleswig hospital in the because he was ill (October to December 1943). It is believed that Elmars was drafted for the Reichsarbeitsdienst or Reich Labour Service (RAD). In January 1944, he was sent to Oldenburg for his service. The camp he lived in was located 7km from the city itself, near a airbase, and young he was trained as a firefighter. In April 1944 Elmars moved to Eggebek, "halfway between Schleswig and Flensburg". In August 1944 he was released from RAD and transferred to the 35th Battalion of the Latvian Legion where he was trained to use anti-tank guns and machine guns. It is unclear exactly where and how long Elmars served in this battalion. He was liberated by the U.S Armed forces and then stayed in a Displaced Persons camp in Hannover where he met his wife.

Notes
Contains handwritten songs and poems. Rachel was hiding in Cauteret (Pyrenees) with her cousin in the house of the cousin's non-Jewish grandmother. An Austrian gym teacher in the village organized children's activities in a group that loosely resembled scouts or guides. They mostly hiked and camped. Rachel used this book to record the songs that they used to sing. She was 11 years old at the time. Narrative: Rachel was the daughter of Serge and Sophie Philipson (nee Orbach). The couple had left Berlin for Paris in the 1920s due to rising antisemitism. Serge, Sophie and Rachel were Polish citizen, they never got either the German or the French citizenship. In Paris, Serge worked for Les Modes Modernes, the hat factory of his brother-in-law, Henri. When an opportunity to expand the business in Ireland arose, Serge moved to Galway. The new factory opened in July 1938. In August 1939, Sophie, Rachel, and 4 other family members (Rachel’s cousin Stéphane, his maternal grandmother Néné, Serge’s sister Esther and Serge’s sister-in-law Choura) left for Cabourg, in Normandy. After the winter 1939-1940 it became difficult to communicate with Ireland but Rachel and Sophie could still send and receive letter from Serge. At the end of winter 1940, the group moved to Néris and in July 1940, after the occupation of France by Germany, they settled in the zone libre in the village of Cauterets, on the border with Spain. They were reunited with Robert, Serge’s brother. In August 1942, 4 family members (Sophie’s sister Ella and her husband Ernest, their daughter Ruth, Serge’s siblings Robert and Esther) were arrested by local police and deported. They were not seen again. At the beginning of 1943, Sophie, her mother Augusta and Rachel moved to Maubourguet. In April 1943, they moved to Cannes in Hotel Victoria with Henri, Stéphane and Néné. Henri, Sophie and Augusta went into hiding together while cousins Stéphane and Rachel were taken care of by Néné and returned to Maubourguet. In January 1944, Henri, Sophie and Augusta were denounced and arrested. They were transferred to Marseille before being sent by train to Drancy transit camp from where they were deported. It is believed they were killed in a Polish killing centre. In 1944, Rachel moved from one place to another – under a non-Jewish identity - and continued to correspond with her father. In June 1945, she reunited with her father Ireland. They had not seen each other for 6 years. In 1951, Rachel got married. In 1954, she immigrated to Montreal.
