SS Taschenjahrbuch 1944
1944, the year of decision.
This is a blank SS pocket diary. There is a large color section at the rear detailing all Wehrmacht ranks and insignia. This particular diary is blank but there must have been many which contained history in the raw. T.E. Lawrence used a pocket diary to make notes on a daily basis, which then formed the aide-memoire for his writing the full-length epic The Seven Pillars of Wisdom , the greatest work in the English language. Many more diaries would have been lost either in the confusion of the final days, or discarded as SS men changed into civilian clothing or other uniforms to make their escape. Many unit histories were lost either to being left behind during the retreat from the Soviets, being looted, or destroyed in the fighting. Remember: »That which is not written down, might never have happened.«
A message from Reichsfuhrer-SS, Heinrich Himmler
