Library Book - Small

Ergebnisheft zum Rechenbuch: für den Unterricht in der Wehrmacht
and in English, the Results Booklet for Arithmetic Book: for the Teaching of the Wehrmacht

Printed in Dresden in 1938, this small book has had an interesting life. As the stamps on the front suggest, some time in the early 1940s, the German Red Cross sent the book to Canada where it became part of an internment camp library. Unfortunately, the camp number is not visible. Brought back to Germany at the end of the war, this book has returned to Canada once more.
