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.
