64 pages, green flexible cardboard cover, bound with staples. Notebook issued by the Department of Mines and Resources Canada with information on preventing forest fires, Canadian National Parks, first aid, weights and measures, etc. Pages 27-28 contain notes taken by Gustave Bauer: some information on blankets from Simpson's on page 27, and the address of Mr. Jack Wechsler ?, c/o Palca Company, Spadina Avenue, Toronto, on page 28. Pages 29-54 are blank. Pages 64 and inside back cover contain calendars for the years 1939-40. Narrative: This document was donated by Eudice Bauer, the wife of Gustave Bauer. It was issued to him in 1940 during his internment in Camp B, New Brunswick, where he worked in the forest. 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.

1 sheet folded in half and printed on each side to make a 4-page pamphlet. The cover has the publisher's name on top, title and author in a rectangle of white. It is surrounded by two different tones of grey. On each side of the title rectangle there are 5 coats of arms representing the 9 provinces and Yukon (Newfoundland was not yet a province). The other three pages contain text that exhorts Canadians to write their M.P.s and demand that more refugees from the Nazis, including Jews, be welcomed to Canada. It emphasizes the abundance of space available in Canada and the important contributions of refugees that have already come. There is a card stapled to the cover that identifies CJC, United Jewish Refugee and War Relief Agencies as distributor of the pamphlet.
