        World War II American prisoner of war's handwritten memoir-journal and photograph album

      U.S. Army Rhodes General Convalescent Hospital at Utica, New York 1945 - This large 12" x 14" album contains 38 pages filled with text and photographs. Ten pages contain Bourgeois's densely filled, pencil-written memoir-journal describing in detail his combat and prisoner experience Europe during World War Two. Three pages contain military-related sketches, one a tipped in drawing of a comrade lying dead on the ground. The remaining pages contain mostly pre and post war photographs. Two of the photographs show the same image, Bourgeois lying nearly naked in a hospital bed probably taken soon after his liberation. There is also a newspaper clipping, probably saved by his parents, reporting that he was missing in action. The album is soiled and edge-worn. The leaves are brittle and beginning to crumble at the margins. The text is faint but legible. Most of the photographs are in nice shape; one of the hospital photographs, which is glued inside the front cover is badly worn. This is a compelling World War II diary-memoir written by a young infantryman while convalescing after his liberation from Stalag 11B where he had been imprisoned following his capture during the Battle of the Bulge. In it, he describes the horrendous combat he faced since landing at Normandy and the savage treatment and execution of American soldiers at the hands of their German captors. Excerpts include: We crept along hedge row after hedge row . . . and it wasn't long before the Heines started shooting at us. We finally took our objective but no sooner were settling down for the night when we got a counter attack which the jerries were noted for. 88's pounded in on us and all we could do was to stay and take it. . . . There were three left of us in my squad besides the sergeant. The sergeant was later killed by a direct mortar shell. . . . It was my Baptism of Fire. . . My first buddie was killed when we both ducked an incoming 88. He lay no more than six inches away from me. I had spoken to him after the 88, I looked up to finish my sentence but he did not raise his head. There was a large gushing stream of blood coming from the left side of his neck. As fear gripped me, I started to run back, but my sergeant stopped me and bawled me out saying, "only cowards run," and that why the Germans did. And so it went on for days. . . . Then it was August fifth of 44 when we attacked Mountain Hill for which we got a special medal. We took it without difficulty. The Germans let us, for next day when we went up the hill we were quickly surrounded. The Germans were clever and smart. We didn't dare fire for it would give our position away. A few tried to get back thru town. Our Walkie Talkie worked some of the time the first few days. We were desperately low on ammunition. We sent out secret scouting parties constantly. We all stood guard day and night until some of the boys started seeing imaginary Germans in the next hedge row. Six days and five nights we starved on a leaf or two of cabbage and a few green apples-six rabbits which my buddy and I dared go to a nearby farmhouse to get. Medical supplies were shot to us with artillery, but it was smashed and buried too deep in the ground to dig out. The Germans ran out of led so started using wooden bullets but the killed also-desperately and painful. The 11th of August our water gave out. The 12th the second armored division reached us. They had broken thru the German Panzers and SS troopers. We held the German prisoners with us on Mountain Hill. The twelfth when freed we begged our successor for rations, or chocolate which we all carried in our gas masks. Our combat packs also bulged with K rations. We all prayed the next day and it was then I received Holy Communion from our Chaplain who came to the front. . . . Then came the Belgium Bulge. . . . The Thirtieth Division was sent for from where we had been holding in Northern Germany. For three days and nights we rode packed in the back of a truck over Germany's coldest hills. . . . . Snipers got some of the men. . . . We stayed up almost

        Manuscript

      Princeton, NJ, 1945. The calculations in the first two pages relate to a generalization of the general theory of relativity that Einstein was working on in connection with his unified field theory. In a paper of June 19, 1945, Einstein had proposed a generalization of the mathematical foundations of general relativity. He proposed to generalize the theory such that distances in space would be invariant (unchanging) not only under changes of the frame of reference (as in the original theory) but also invariant under so-called Hermitian transformations. In a follow-up paper of January 24, 1946 (co-written with E.G. Straus), the authors note that Pauli had shown them that the limitation to Hermitian transformations is not necessary for the theory.Indeed, in the first two pages of the document Pauli shows that a restriction to Hermitian transformations is problematic, and he suggests an even more general transformation group, and thereby provides a generalization of the alleged structure of space and time that goes further than that proposed by Einstein in his 1945 papers.The pages were very likely written for Einstein. They are not formally addressed to him, most likely because Einstein and Pauli were both at the same Institute at the time and Pauli could just put his notes in Einstein's departmental pigeonhole himself. Still, the calculations finish on a personal note: "Best regards, on Monday morning I'll come to the Institute, Yours, W. Pauli"; likely an invitation for further discussion between two of the greatest minds of the twentieth century.Einstein was at the Institute for Advanced Studies at Princeton from 1933 to his death in 1955. Pauli was a visiting professor in 1935 and then again from 1940 to 1946. When Pauli received the Nobel Prize in 1945, Einstein gave a speech in which he called Pauli his intellectual heir. Indeed, there are many signs that Einstein and Pauli had regular contact and conversations on physics during their joint time at Princeton, and the first two pages of the manuscript are likely an important testament to their collaboration.The third page is also in Pauli's hand, but it is not directly related to the preceding pages, even though it, too, contains differential geometric calculations, related to curvature of spacetime and which paths through spacetime are the straightest ones.Pauli (1900-1958) was certainly one of the foremost theoretical physicist of modern times. He was one of the co-creators of quantum mechanics, he formulated the Pauli exclusion principle (which allows for a quantum mechanical explanation of the periodic table of chemistry), gave the first theoretical account of electron spin, and successfully predicted the elementary particle we today call the neutrino. Pauli formulated the CPT Theorem, which links the symmetries of space and time to the properties of elementary particles. For decades, he was the nexus of international correspondence on theoretical physics, maybe the last theoretician who overlooked the entire field, and was aptly called "the conscience of physics" by most of his contemporaries due to his relentless criticism of everyone's work, no matter their stature.By the age of 21 Pauli had authored a comprehensive textbook on the general theory of relativity that was immediately praised by Einstein as an astounding piece of work. It remained one of the most important textbooks on the topic for at least four decades.Thanks to Dr. Dennis Lehmkuhl of the Einstein Papers Project at Cal Tech for his help in translation and explanation.
