A letter/note I found in the journal (in English for some reason) talking about their arrival back in Germany
As I said before, Diaryfag: DO.YOU.SELL.IT.GOY!?
the handwriting is pretty clear and uniform. I think if OP scans them in high resolution, modern OCR can digitize most of it easily. Might have to increase the contrast somewhat for optimal OCR.

That's all unless I find more diaries for 1933-1942
Somebody please kill me. It was fucking paradise on Earth.
SOMEBODY WAKE ME UP FROM THIS NIGHTMARE WORLD
Goy, can I buy that book? I mean, the original?
Almost forgot: if that German poster asking about family sees this, I don't think we're related. I found a giant parchment family tree with this stuff and didn't see any of the names you mentioned on it.
That is going to take a very long time to get translated.
I don't speak any German but I can already tell it's some pretty heavy stuff.
I downloaded the whole thing too,
even if it doesn't get translated it's pretty cool
album download links:
still waiting for one more album link
Would you mind translating the page on the right? The illustration makes it look like it has to do with a camp.
It's definitely interesting. Shame I stopped learning german at the end of high school.
Camp K2 fell into the hands of the advancing enemies without sustaining damage.
All day and night long and in all languages, they[the enemy] send reports to the world which will,without a doubt, create terrible hate against us in the world. Because of the lack of kindness towards the jews they don't tell that the camps are mostly jew camps. From USA and England came, for example in Camp Buchenwald, Parlamentarian commisions[?]. Terrible things are getting told. In one camp the prisoners were lead into a room and there attacked with a club.
I had to interprete in some sentences but the sense should be correct
Camp K2 = is probably concentration camps.
KZ is abbreviation for KonZentrations = Concentration (camp).
they[the enemy] send ''Outrageous'' reports to the world.
Can't really make out the Parla stuff either other than that its a solid translation.
if this is genuine shit contact the the Deutsche Nationalbibliothek or the guys who made the " Wehrmachtsausstellung" from the "Hamburger Institut für Sozialforschung" . Maybe they are interested in it as a genuine piece of ww2 war history.
>it was heaven on earth
What a surprise.
At some point I need to get a German speaker to look at all the other stuff I've got and tell me if any of it is interesting. I've got a bunch of manuscript-looking things from the 1700s onwards, and tons of letters/notes mostly written by the diary author. My mother translated only ~10% of them, although she probably cherrypicked the good stuff anyway.
Go for it, /pol/ isn't going anywhere
