On offer is a significant, original World War II manuscript relic handwritten by the fascinating, heroic Gregory Meisler a Jewish, Polish Army officer, [noted in the book 'Four Lives of Gregory Meisler: Jew, Warrior and Polish Patriot'] who was born in Lodz Poland in 1900, died in 1953, but in the interim he served with distinction in the Polish army through 1939, was captured by Germans and put in an 'Oflag', a German prisoner of war camp in Murnau Stalag VII [Oflag VII-A Murnau], located in Bavaria in Murnau am Staffelsee where he spent the entire war. The small 1942 pocket calendar from 1942 is in German with Latin and Ancient Roman Months names. Mr. Meisler wrote in Polish and it appears from casual translation that he worked as a Cantin or shop manager, noting financial and cash transaction among his personal entries, special events like Jewish feasts and their dates - Yom Kippur, Hanukah, Purim and Pesach. One entry notes about 400 hundred captives chosen to be Police guards. Some problems with getting staff for the Cantin. Tells about a packet he got from someone, and about relations with another Polish officer. At the back are important addresses; the Red-Cross office in France, Artur Szyk, who was his friend and more. The 12 x 7 cm. cloth softcover has some damage but is complete, no missing pages. With bent edges but overall G.
