Georg Biermann (1890-1945) kept this small notebook in the Terezin Ghetto. Biermann used these papers to keep notes, including names, phone numbers, and addresses of friends and family. The notebook also contains an entry in which he describes receiving 15 pairs of shoelaces from a friend in the ghetto. He optimistically prophesied that the war would end when he used up all the shoelaces. As of February 29, 1944 they had used up 13 pairs. "When will this war end?"
