        1944 - 1945 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT DIARY DETAILING THE LAST HORRIBLE MONTHS OF NAZI OCCUPATION IN THE HEART OF HOLLAND AND THE DIFFICULTIES OF THEIR NEW FREEDOM WHEN THE OCCUPATION FINALLY ENDS

      HILVERSUM BUSSUM ALMERE HOLLAND NETHERLANDS NL 1944 - On offer is a small, intriguing, significant handwritten Dutch language World War II diary which details in everyday language the final horrible last days of the Nazi occupation of Holland and the invasion to drive them out. Running out of everyday supplies and food the Dutch were on the verge of death from starvation our unidentified author recounts the events of the day, inventories what few food and basics he has saved and traded off and then provides anecdotal references of the common shared experience of the destitute Dutch. Most interesting are entries wherein our author relates for example taking some milk from someone as a 'trade' for his pet cat the writer is sure that they stole and most likely ate. Horror is also on the author's mind as he relates the roundup of men in Hilversum and region which apparently where the writer is based. This is truly a heartbreaking read given that the Dutch were aware of the oncoming Allied victory yet still they starved and died before the supply trains and infrastructure could be rebuilt.

        Portrait of Paul Robeson as Othello

      New York, june 1, 1944. (ROBESON, PAUL) 9-3/4 x 7-1/4. Full length, in costume designed by Robert Edmond Jones. Vintage gelatin silver print. Very good, archival mounting tape on recto. Embossed stamp lower front, atelier stamped on verso: "Photograph by Carl Van Vechten | 101 Central Park West | Cannot be reproduced without permission", and docketed by Van Vechten in ink, giving the subject of the photograph ("Paul Robeson as Othello"), the date, and the number of the negative . Superb, brooding image of Robeson in one of the most famous performances in American theater history. Robeson had originally played Othello in in a 1930 English production, opposite Dame Peggy Ashcroft as Desdemona, but American taboos against mixed-race casting prevented an American production for years, and was not until 1943 that Robeson's Othello was ventured in the States. The New York production of Othello at the Schubert Theater with Paul Robeson in the lead, Uta Hagen as Desdemona and José Ferrer as Iago, had the longest run of any Shakespeare play to that time (289 performances), opening on Oct. 19, 1943 and closing n July 1, 1944. It was the first time in US history that an Afro-American portrayed Othello on the stage, and audiences were riveted to see a black man kiss a white woman

        Christmas Card for 1944. SIGNED BY DONITZ IN 1944

      1944 - Single sheet of stout card measuring approx. 4.5 x 7.5 inches (12.0 x 19.0 cms), obverse with gilt edges printed with the insignia of 'Admiral Inspector of the Fleet' in gilt and black and seasonal text in black; reverse blank. The seasonal text, SIGNED BY DONITZ IN BLUE INK , reads 'Grossadmiral Donitz dankt fur die guten Wunsche zum Weihachtsfest und zum neuen jahr und erwidert sie herzlich'. Grossadmiral Karl Donitz (1871-1980), German naval leader and Hitler's successor, commanded the Kriegsmarine during the latter half of WWII and is remembered particularly for his promotion of the U-boat offensive. He also served as Reichspraesident following Hitler's suicide in April 1945. Having authorised the German surrender he became a prisoner-of-war of the British and was sentenced to ten years' imprisonment for war crimes (primarily for ordering unrestricted submarine warfare). Following his release from Spandau in October 1956, Donitz's reputation underwent a degree of rehabilitation and he took considerable pains to answer correspondence and to provide autographs when required (including a facsimile for historians and collectors of the Articles of Surrender which he co-signed with Montgomery). HOWEVER, DOCUMENTS SIGNED BY DONITZ DURING THE WAR YEARS ARE SCARCE. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        The Dark Page

      Duell Sloane and Pearce, New York 1944 - A good copy of the stated second printing in a poor dust-jacket, warmly inscribed (with a self-portrait) and signed by Fuller in pencil on the front free endpaper. Binding is solid, but shows some shelf-wear along the bottom edges. The dust-jacket is missing a section along the top eighth of the front panel, and is abraded visibly in several spots midway down the spine. There is an intact tear along the upper edge of the rear panel. Protected by Brodart cover. Despite the decidedly poor condition of the jacket this is a stunning volume, given the lovely inscription, which renders it quite rare. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        10 Photos of Milton Wolff's Family

      1944 - Ten matted black and white photos. Measuring 11" x 14". Fine fresh photos in near fine mats with some toning, scattered wear at the corners, and ink dates (some written over existing pencil dates). All Signed by Jacobi on the mounts. A collection of photos of the wife and children of Milton Wolff, a social activist and the ninth commander of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade of North American volunteers who served during the Spanish Civil War. Jacobi, an emigre who fled Hitler's Germany, was a prolific photographer known for her portraiture of the most important people of her time including, to name just a few, Albert Einstein, Marc Chagall, Paul Robeson, Robert Frost, Eleanor Roosevelt, and the iconic photo of J.D. Salinger that appears on the first edition of *The Catcher in the Rye*. The portraits here were taken in late June of 1944 while Milton Wolff was overseas fighting in World War II. The pictures feature two shots of Anne Wolff; two of her daughter; five of her daughter and son; and one of all three together. Each a wonderful example of Jacobi's work as a photographer.
